How to Hack with Arduino: Defeat VPNs & Track a MacOS Computer Remotely

The Digispark is a low-cost USB development board that's programmable in Arduino and capable of posing as a keyboard, allowing it to deliver a number of payloads. For only a few dollars, we can use the Digispark to deliver a payload to a macOS computer that will track the Mac every 60 seconds, even bypassing security like a VPN. The trick to low-cost attacks against macOS computers is to use what's already installed on the system. Today, we'll take advantage of several commands that don't require passwords to execute and can force a target to check in with a tracking server every 60 seconds... more
