The USBNinja is a highly covert USB exploit framework allowing for wireless remote triggering of custom payloads.
While dormant, the USBNinja functions as a regular USB Cable: Data Transfer, Recharging, etc. However, when triggered (via smartphone or dedicated long-range antenna) - it executes its preprogrammed payload on the host device.
Emulating keyboard and mouse actions, payloads are completely customisable, and can be highly targeted.
Undetectable by firewalls, AV software or visual inspection, the USBNinja is an ideal tool for penetration testers, police and government.

Product Presentation: USB Ninja
The USBNinja has three distinct modes:
Because the device acts as a standard USB cable, it needs to be pushed into programming / DFU mode. This is done by using the "Programming Ring".
The Programming Ring must be placed on the host-side plug within three seconds of being connected to the programming / host computer.
This will place the device in programming mode, and allow for payloads to be uploaded to the device.
Programming is possible via the standard Arduino IDE.
The device is 'Deployed' when it is connected to the target machine.
It will operate as a standard USB cable, allowing for data transfer and power transfer. It is able to stay in this state indefinitely until it is triggered.
The device is triggered wirelessly via Bluetooth. It can be triggered by smartphone, or by dedicated remote control.
Typical smartphone trigger distance is up to 7 meters.
Typical remote control trigger distance is up to 50 meters.
