  • BadUSB 2.0: Exploring USB man-in-the-middle attacks

    The uses and capabilities of rogue USB hardware implants for use in cyber espionage activities is still very much an unknown quantity. Security professionals would benefit from tools capable of exploring the threat landscape while increasing awareness and countermeasures.

    BadUSB 2.0 or BadUSB2 is an investigative tool capable of compromising USB fixed-line communications through an active man-in-the-middle attack. It is able to achieve the same results as hardware keyloggers, keyboard emulation devices and earlier BadUSB hardware implants, thus providing an insight into how these attacks may be prevented.

    Furthermore, BadUSB2 is able to evaluate new techniques to defeat keyboard-based one-time-password systems, automatically replay user credentials, as well as acquire an interactive command shell over USB.
