Target Eye Revealed – part 6


This new article contains another portion of the Target Eye Monitoring System’s source code along with the secret behind the method used by Target Eye to hide its files. Target Eye was able to hide its own files along with all files collected from the target machine, prior to sending it to its operator. The article explains how these files are hidden, along with exposes how to reveal these hidden files.

The default UI

Target Eye uses a simple (and yet unique) mechanism  to hide files but the trick will work on most new Windows systems (including Windows 8) that because the only option to reveal these hidden files is not part of the default user interface of the Windows Files Explorer, so even if the “Show Hidden Items” is checked, the Target Eye hidden files will not be revealed.

You can read more and browse further parts of the Target Eye source code in the following articles:

1.  The first article is about Target Eye’s Auto Update mechanism, and how it is capable of checking for updates, downloading them when there are, installing them and running them instead of the old version currently running, all of the above, with no end-user intervention.

2. The second article was about the Target Eye’s screen capturing mechanism, and how compact JPG files are created combining a reasonable image quality and a small footprint.

3. The third article was about the Shopping List mechanism.

4. The forth article is about Keyboard capturing.

5.The fifth article deals with the packaging used to let our Secret Agent in. In other words, how Target Eye can be used to wrap it with what we refer to as “cover story”

6. The Sixth article explains how files are hidden and when, along with exposing how to reveal these hidden files.
