NetBus 2 Pro
Sockets 'de Troie
Well, it was bound to happen...
Carl-Fredrik Neikter (the creator of the original NetBus) has decided to release a new version of NetBus, called NetBus 2 Pro. Rumor has it that Carl decided to release a "legitimate" version of the application because of everyone's interest in the original.
NetBus 2 Pro currently affects Windows 95/98 PC's and Windows NT PC's.
The "server" portion (typically named "NBSvr.exe") is approximately 599kb in size.
Port 20034 (by default) is used to establish its connection between the "client" and "server".
Once installed, it is rerun every time the computer is started by means of an entry under the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices" branch in the Registry.
Who is Responsible?
NetBus 2 Pro was written by Carl-Fredrik Neikter (firstname.lastname@example.org), a Swedish programmer. Carl is the creator of the original NetBus as well.
Provided below, is a picture of what the "client" portion of the software looks like. It's what the remote user would use to control your system. What could be easier than "pointing and clicking" your way through another users PC?
How to Remove
Several steps involve working within the Windows 95/98 or Windows NT registry. And although the steps are easy, I cannot be held responsible if a mistake is made. Please use caution.
Congratulations, NetBus 2 Pro has been removed from your system.
