Copies of Back Orifice 2000
were distributed last saturday at DefCon VII, the hackers conference that
is being held in Las Vegas.

Back Orifice 2000 can be used to grant access to a Windows NT
machine with superuser privileges. For the first time, this
application is distributed with source code, distributed under the
GNU/GPL license. This fact could make more difficult to prevent the
effects of the use of this application, because having access to
source code will cause that multiple versions of the application
could be spread quickly around the globe.

You can reach the
binaries and sources of Back Orifice here
, here or here.

Microsoft
has published web pages informing about the dangers of Back Orifice
2000.
