Hey again all, im back with ehks v2beta. Ive changed this version alot. It seems by the feedback you guys gave me last time, that v1 wasent good. Most of the feedback was negative and it didnt work. And alot of you infected your selfs and asked me about where to find the missing (.dll). There was never a missing (.dll), it was a fake error meesage, like I stated in the readme file. Anyway Ive took out the fake error message this time, so you might have to bind it with another application/jpeg or whatever.
NOTE: DONT OPEN SERVER.EXE unless you want to infect your self....
Follow these instructions.
1. Rename 'Sever.exe' to what ever you want, make it convincing, not like 'TROJAN.exe' or 'KEYLOGGER.exe'.
2. Send it to them and tell them its a new hacking tool, NOTE: Try binding it with a real one. If you know how.
( Once the victim opens it, it hides in memory and records all the key stokes on the computer, so you can view them with an Internet Browser like MSIE. )
3> Connect to there machine on port 80 with an Internet browser, as stated above. Type in there IP address into it and just hit Enter. For example if the victims IP address was you type in or just There IP WONT be
If you have Physical Machine Access, rather than remote, you can just opne up an internet browser on there machine and type in and this should bring it up.
Heres whats been added in version 2beta.
* Better Stealthing code - hopefully wont crash.
* Better Keylogging code - you can now see the windows handle and what they are typing in it.
* Better HTML log file - much more user friendly.
* Added Anti-firewall/Anti-AntiVirus - this will hopefully stop most firewalls and anti-viruses.

ehks v2.1 is simply a keylogger which lets you check the log files remotely via a web browser (e.g, Internet Explorer) Connect to there machine on port 80 with an Internet browser. This version is 100% Different, ive completely re-built it.
Supported Version of Windows, * win9x - Ive only tested on a 9x box, so if you guys are gonna test on a different machine, let me know im uncertain as to weather or nto it works win XP, some beta testers say yes, some say no, im looking, into this for the next version. The keylogger doesnt run under NT, I have tried, but feel free to try for your selfs, and give me feedback on the result.
