“Second-generation Back Orifice hacker program expected to
debut.”

“The Cult of the Dead Cow created and released the program Back
Orifice last year to the general public at the Las Vegas hacker and

remotely control victims’ desktops, potentially undetected.

“At this year’s conference, on July 9, Sir Dystic says the cult
will outdo itself and release Back Orifice 2000. The program, he
says, is smaller, nimbler, and twice as nefarious.”

“The group also says it will make the source code available for
Back Orifice 2000, which will likely spawn multiple strains of the
program in the hacker community, experts say.”
