Posted on June 2, 2001


NetBus is a remote administration tool for the Windows Operating system. When this program was first released it was known as a ‘hacker tool’ where a user can gain remote access to a computer with the program installed. This program is like the CDC Back Orifice application commonly known as BO2K.

Virus protection vendors categorized this program as a trojan horse but many insist it is a legit remote administration tool. NetBus is on so Macintosh users will know their computer CAN NOT be infected by this program. However a client application was made for the Mac platform, a Macintosh user can connect and control a PC computer that has NetBus installed. You can download the program below.
