Currently Big In The Underground

Here's a program that seems to be all the rage at the moment - "Internet Exploiter". It does exactly what it says on the tin. Here's what you have after install:

Some interesting links are placed there - aside from the obviousness of placing links to hacking sites related to the program, there's also a link to a hosting company, which is a touch....bizarre. It's also good to see that sites are still carrying the warning about the (completely fake) Internet Privacy Act of 1995.

In case you were wondering, "File.html" appears to be a bonus feature thrown in at no extra cost in the form of a phpBB spamming tool:

Run the main program, and the creator helpfully clues you in on what to expect:

Nice(!)

Finally, we come to the application itself, which (after all the initial build-up) is a strange mish-mash of tools and add-ons.

Automated ways to search for "vulnerable" online web-cams, booters, more forum exploit searches, a Yahoo profiler and a Bandwidth KIller are some of the "features" of this application. After testing, it doesn't appear to be as automated as it likes to appear - many functions here don't seem to work by simply pushing the buttons, which is exactly what the average script kiddy is hoping for.

Looks like we can call off the "We're all doomed" parades for the moment....
