- Most of the commands we use to make batch files are actually the same commands first implemented in MS-DOS (An ancient microsoft OS). These DOS(Disk Operating System) commands can also be used in the command prompt window. Whatever your batch file does, you can do it through the command line interface (CLI).
- Start "Run", or hit [Windows key + R]. Type "cmd", and you're presented with the CLI. You can type "help" to get a list of commonly used commands and their functions. I recommend you try out each and every single command you can find. Hacking is getting more and more user friendly everyday, CLIs are being replaced by GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) - meaning in most places you won't have to actually type in the commands, you can just select an option and press a button. But as of now, this is a work in progress. With more advanced hacking techniques, specially the ones that involve using BackTrack tools, you will find that majority of the hacks are still done through the CLI (More on this, later).
- Md - (or mkdir) - Make Directory. This command is used to create a directory (a folder). The command:
- Cd - Change Directory. This command is used to change the current directory. The following command:
- So, we begin by turning off echo. Then we change the directory to Desktop. Now we create ten folders with names 0-9. We setup a label and start opening up all the 10 folders. Now the final statement causes an infinite loop. Of course, if the folder is already opened it will not be opened again. But the use of this infinite loop is if the user attempts to close the folder, the loop is still going on and it will send a message to open that folder again. So the victim will be stuck as every time s/he closes a folder it opens up again, eventually making them give up and restart the system.The above code can be made much shorter with the use of LOOPs, as discussed below. We start by creating a variable and setting it's value to 0. We use this variable as a check to let the computer know when to come out of the loop. Take a look at the code first:
- So the loop runs ten times (0-9), and then stops. The above was not a virus, but a simple program. Earlier, I told you that the above Folder Blaster virus code can be made shorter by using loops. You know how to make the virus, and now you know how to use loops. Combining the two of them, I leave as an exercise for the wannabe hacker. (HINT: See the folder names up top going from 0-9 ? You can just replace them with %i% in the above loop.)
