Forum Thread: Mr.Robot Hacks (Hack with a CD?!)

Hello everyone.
This is my first post here, so...
I was watching Mr.Robot, the part that Dark Army hacks Angela's PC with a CD.
but i know that it's not possible, because in Windows Vista and later there is no Autorun that run without permission!
so my mind goes for USB Rubber Duck. of course i know it has a chip and... (I didn't see it myself!)
but i believe we could make something like that with a CD.

Maybe i'm just talking ridiculous but if someone could tell me is that possible or not, and how it's possible to get a shell with just a CD, i appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

i think so, just to refresh u up, most of the hacking in Mr robots are real and possible..not just a fantasy

Autorun isn't necessary in that type of attack. Since she is on the computer that she is hacking she can run the file manually. It's crazy how easily anyone can make a virus if they have access to the machine for a minute or two.

That's right.
but if you watch it, you see that after inserting the CD,
It's automatically execute itself!

Call the director and ask for selling them computer on Allsafe hehe
