5 min read Rubber Ducky is the “technical” name of a USB device which looks like a USB thumb drive, but presents itself to the computer as a USB keyboard, which, once plugged in, starts typing away pre-recorded keystrokes at super-human speeds. It can bypass many IT safeguards since the computer detects it as a keyboard, and it can easily fool people. Someone might think they’re just plugging in a harmless USB thumb drive, or even just a harmless iPhone charging cable. These can be disguised as just about anything these days, and they can be microscopic.
