Following the previous post, I thought it would be nice to find alternative ways to code a backdoor while using Python as the scripting language.
One of my first ideas was to write a simple backdoor that would use some kind of IM (Instant Messaging), like the script kiddies do with IRC. Yes, I can comfortably sit in front of my desk and wait until one of my XMPP bots pops-up in my list of on-line contacts!
I found some easy examples to construct a bot using the python-xmpp library and I reused most of the code. Pretty script kiddie all together :)
The code can be found here: xmppshell.py
