You've heard of high-tech USBs to keep your data safe, but how about USBs to run simulated attacks?
The Bash Bunny by Hak5 is a simple and powerful multi-function USB attack and automation platform for penetration testers and systems administrators. So, if you need to check whether a system is hack-proof, the Bash Bunny can test it for you!
The Bash Bunny has a cute name but a masterful attack plan. The beauty of the Bash Bunny is that it can trick a target computer into thinking it’s a HID keyboard, USB Ethernet, Serial or Mass Storage device, all of which mean the computer allows it different accesses and to perform different functions that allow attacks to take place. You can even run keystroke injection attacks, bring-your-own-network attacks and intelligent exfiltration all at the same time.
To get the most out of the Bash Bunny, it needs to be in the hands of someone who knows how to wield it. That said, there‘s a lot of helpful information online, both from the company and other users. It’s also extremely user friendly; this device is easy to set up, and it makes it extremely simple to select what you want to run. If the light on the device turns green, it’s hacked your system, allowing for extremely quick and simple feedback that gives a clear visual indication of whether or not you’re safe.
Features that make the Bash Bunny particularly effective include its ability to carry multiple payloads at once, allowing you to run multiple attack tests with ease, and the fact that it runs all of its attacks from simple .txt files, which makes it easy for you to load it up and prep it for each test with each new threat you download.
The Bash Bunny has been made to work efficiently and fast. It boots almost instantly, thanks to its quad-core ARM processor, 512 MB of RAM and desktop-class 8GB SSD. This hefty system, the easy switch between attacks and the helpful light that shines once entry is made all make this an extremely fast and frustration-free way to run hackability tests, keeping the faff out of the way so you can focus on what matters.
