Just in time to coincide with the release of Office 2000, is the Cult of the Dead Cow’s Back Orifice 2000. There’s a Web site at www.bo2k.com, but it appears to be down, probably due to excess traffic. InfoWorld also has a Back Orifice article that describes its capabilities, and includes some gratuitous whining from a Microsoft employee. The latest version of Back Orifice is released under the GPL, so you can use it as a foundation for your own Windows “administration tools.”
