Ever wondered what a hacker can see if they manage to access your computer? Well, a TikTok user has shown his followers exactly that. Watch below:
In the clip, he explains that he's using a now defunct programme called Orcus, which enables someone to hack into a computer and pretty much do what they want - even access your camera.
Pointing out that it is for 'educational purposes only', Matt says: "This specific programme is called 'Orcus', it's a RAT, which stands for 'Remote Administration Tool', and it's used to access your computer, see all your files, your webcam, your keyboard strokes, everything.
"I just ran my programme, and now, I have access to my desktop.
"There's a whole list of s*** you can do to their computer. First I'm gonna show... probably pretty obvious, you can look at their desktop, and look at that, they're watching my stream.
"The next one is key logger, anything I type, anything I do, it all shows up right there.
"Of course, you can look at their webcam, go through all their files without them even realising it, you can gather all of their passwords on their computer, usually from Chrome.
"And now for the fun s*** - you can send sounds to their computer."
In a later video, Matt points out that you can't actually get Orcus anymore, and that you shouldn't try to anyway.
According to reports, in 2019, a criminal investigation was launched into the people behind it, John 'Armada' Revesz and Vincent Leo Griebel.
At the time, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) concluded that Orcus was not a typical administration tool Griebel and Revesz claimed, but, instead, a Remote Access Trojan (RAT).
In a statement, the CRTC said: "Evidence obtained in the course of the investigation allowed the Chief Compliance and Enforcement Officer (CCEO) to conclude that the Orcus RAT was not the typical administration tool Griebel and Revesz claimed, but was, in fact, a Remote Access Trojan (RAT), a known type of malware."
Last month, it was reported that a glitch in an electronic chastity belt allowed a hacker to remotely gain access to them and keep them locked.
The Qiui Cellmate was dubbed the 'world's first app controlled chastity device', however, one person managed to break into the device after the manufacturer left the coding (API) open for attack.
The device connects to an app using an API, however that coding didn't have a password, meaning anyone, anywhere in the world could take control of the device.
A hacker reportedly sent their victims ominous messages that the device had been locked and he would hold their penises to ransom.
"Your c**k is mine now," the hacker told one of the victims, according vx-underground.
Be careful online, guys.
