Hacking Android Devices using androrat

Androrat is a client/server application developed in Java Android for the client side and in Java/Swing for the Server.

The name Androrat is a mix of Android and RAT (Remote Access Tool).

It has been developed in a team of 4 for a university project. It has been realised in one month. The goal of the application is to give the control of the android system remotely and retrieve informations from it.

Technical matters

  • The android application is the client for the server which receive all the connections.
  • The android application run as a service(not an activity) that is started during the boot. So the user does not need to interact with the service (Even though there is a debug activity that allow to configure the IP and the port to connect to).
  • The connection to the server can be triggered by a SMS or a call (this can be configured)

By successfully running the tool one can get the following details of the victim.

  • Get contacts (and all theirs informations)
  • Do vibrate the phone
  • Get call logs
  • Open an URL in the default browser
  • Get all messages
  • Send a text message
  • Location by GPS/Network
  • Do a toast
  • Monitoring received messages in live
  • Streaming video (for activity based client only)
  • Monitoring phone state in live (call received, call sent, call missed..)
  • Stream sound from microphone (or other sources..)
  • Take a picture from the camera

  • In the third box, browse and select the target application with which you would like to bind the hacking application.

Note: 

  • If the application does not work and no devices are listed in the AndroRat application, try building just the Hacking application instead of binding it other application.
  • For the users who are using wireless routers, port forwarding is a must.
  • Before trying it on others devices try it on your own Android first.
  • Turn off the Anti-virus before extracting the AndroRat zip which you have downloaded.
  • If possible turn off Firewall too.
