Hacking – Part I


A lot of people want to know how to hack. Here I start a series called Hacking, which will give you small tips on how to hack.

Make a Batch File

1] Click Start. Then click Run. Alternatively, you can press WinKey+R, which is the shortcut for Run.

Click Start --> Run

2] In the Run dialog box, type “notepad” without the quotes, and hit enter.

Type "notepad"

Type "notepad"

3] In notepad, type

start x.bat

x.bat

Here, x can be anything – quake3, virus, phone, 42, etc. But remember to but .bat at the end, or the virus will not work.

Type it

Type it

4] Hit Ctrl+S (Save) and give the name as x.bat. Again, if you replaced x by anything else, the filename should also be changed.

Save

Save

5] After saving, your virus looks like an innocent, visible file. A tiny icon of <1 KB. Even antivirus cannot detect it!

6] Now to mask it to make it attractive, so that the user clicks on it. Let’s change the icon. Right-click and drag the file and once you leave the button, you will get a drop down menu. Click “Create Shortcuts Here”

Drag and click

7] Right-click the shortcut and click properties. Click Change Icon in the Properties window under Shortcut tab.

Shortcut Properties

8] Click OK on the error message and click an appropriate icon. Click OK twice. I chose Internet Explorer, as the user can easily be tricked into clicking on this.

That’s it! You’ve made a virus! You can drop the shortcut anywhere on the user’s computer
