Today, anyone who wants to gain access to your computer need only order a device online, and load it with their payload. Then they can leave it somewhere where you’ll find it and when you insert it into your computer to see what it is, it will start sending commands to the computer as if the attacker is sitting at your keyboard. This happens even if you have turned off Autoplay.
Penteract Disguised-Keyboard Detector 2 addresses that threat by locking the screen when a keyboard is detected. If you meant to connect a keyboard - just go ahead and unlock it. If not - the disguised keyboard will not be able to run commands on your computer any more than a person sitting by your locked screen.
See it in action: Disconnect and reconnect your keyboard to see it work.
Will also lock the screen on the detection of other HID devices such as mice. As above, if you connected one, unlock the screen. If not - remove whatever device you connected! It might be malicious.
