Duck tales. How to create a wireless analogue of Rubber Ducky

Hackers and pentesters consider BadUSB an efficient attack vector; it emulates the keyboard and performs operations on the attacked computer under the disguise of user input. Such attacks are very difficult-to-detect because neither the OS nor antiviruses suspect the keyboard of any wrongdoing. Today, I will show how to create your own BadUSB tool – a wireless device looking like a memory stick.

ZetaSDR: Assembling a software defined radio with your own hands

SDR (software defined radio) is a radio communication system that uses software to convert radio signals into digital code. This provides tremendous possibilities for the analysis of radio signals, and plenty of SDRs are currently available on the market. In this article, I will explain how SDR operates and will show how to create a radio receiver with your own hands. Concurrently, I will do my best to minimize the loads of math required to understand the topic.
