Weet iemand toevallig wat "RCA" protocol compatibility is?
Een search op Google leverde me het volgende op (maar ik vind 't een vreemd iets om "compatible" mee te zijn):
Remotely Controlled Agents (RCA) are more advanced agents that provide total control of the infected user’s machine to the home base. They are similar to the program pcAnywhere in that a remote administrator can access and command another user’s computer. RCAs consist of a “light-weight server that runs on the infected machine, executing command as dictated by its operator, and a client, which runs on the attacker’s machine and remotely controls the server component over the network” (Security Portal). The RCA works by infecting the target machine with the lightweight server (similar to a virus infection by email or web browsing) and establishes a link that is sent out of the network to the remote operator. The server is separate from the client component of RCAs which makes it difficult to locate the original server.
A famous RCA is Back Orifice that originated in August 1998 from a group called Cult of the Dead Cow with remote administrator features including “keystroke logging, file share management, port redirection, audio/video capture, file and registry access, cached password retrieval, and process control. It also includes programming capabilities to build plug-ins; the Back Orifice 2000 version has a plug-in that encrypts its control traffic, which makes decipher and detection very difficult.
