Phylix Posted September 25, 2007 Share Posted September 25, 2007 Just over the weekend, I went through the horrible ordeal of losing my USB drive. For those few days, I felt. . . incomplete. Of course, I had backed up my data, but it was a few months old. I work at a school as a technician and I had looked through the semester's course schedule to see one professor who may have retrieved it. After asking him today and discovering he did not have anyone turn a drive in, I was quite disappointed. I suspected a student had found it after taking out one of the computers for what I assume was for a computer building class and had simply kept it. I felt pretty helpless. So I made a vow to myself to never let this happen again. I've been following Hak. 5 since early first season and the Switchblade was one of my favorite tools from the show. I spent most of the morning catching up on its progress and an idea hit me after seeing a feature in Leapo's Pocket-Knife payload that would simply not run the payload if a specific file existed on the hard drive. So I searched and I searched, but I couldn't find any information on creating a payload that checks a web page for a specific file before continuing to run or not. I've tried searching for command line programs that would download files, but that's all they did. . . Download a file. I know I could probably have it download the file and then read it off the USB drive, but that would seem to make the process much slower. I'm not experienced with batch files, so does anyone know a way to quickly retrieve data from a website and maybe use an IF statement with it? And also execute DOS commands retrieved from the same place? I know the Switchblade has E-Mail capabilities, but I don't feel like it's enough. Oh, and I did get my USB drive back. The other technician I work with found it, but didn't know it was mine. Unfortunately, it just broke two hours ago. . . So I'll still have to buy a new one.
