Pentesting with Teensy

Windows autorun feature is disabled by default these days. Is it still possible to launch code automatically from a USB drive? What if there is a USB drive that could execute code automatically when plugged in and yet not able to be identify as USB drive by the system?

Teensy, USB-based micro-controller development board, which can be programmed to emulate as any device and store programming code. I have wrote an article that describes how you can emulate the device as a HID (Human Interface Device) and inject attack codes and execute commands in the system.

This article titled "Pentesting with Teensy" can be found in the July issue of PenTest (Web App) Magazine.
