Bash Bunnies can be programmed with a variety of payloads. these payloads can be scripts or commands that will execute when plugged into a computer.
The payloads can be used to automate a large variety of tasks which include information gathering from target systems to exploiting vulnerabilities or configuring the system for remote access.
This can be used to steal login credentials, sensitive files, or even other data stored on the target system.
For instance, you have a payload that mimics a keyboard and type out commands to save stolen passwords or access to network resources.
Bash Bunnies can also be used to conduct network attacks.
They can emulate different network devices such as ethernet adaptors or even a wireless access point.
They can then perform various types of attacks such as man in the middle (MITM) attacks, DNS spoofing or even network reconnaissance.
Once data has been collected, a Bash Bunny can exfiltrate the data to an external server or store it on its own storage.
This data usually includes sensitive company information, customer data or even intellectual property.
