Back Orifice Windows Remote Administration Tool
Back Orifice is a remote administration system which allows a user to control a computer across a tcpip connection using a simple console or GUI application. On a local LAN or across the internet, BO gives its user more control of the remote Windows machine than the person at the keyboard of the remote machine has.
BO is small, and entirely self installing. Simply executing the server on any windows machine installs the server, moving the executable into the system where it will not interfere with other running applications. To ease distribution, BO can also be attached to any other windows executable which will run normally after installing the server.
Once running, BO does not show up in the task list or close-program list, and is rerun every time the computer is started. The filename that it runs as is configurable before it is installed, and it's as easy to upgrade as uploading the new version and running it.
The Back Orifice Server Contains the Following Functionality
