Autoit programs on a virtual machine without Autoit installed

Recommended Posts


That's what I thought.

But last time I tried it without the victim machine having autoit installed, my goal as a test was to have it open Notepad and type a simple message. Instead, it opened up HUNDREDS of processes of its own file. While quite violent, NOT my desired effect.

That isn't a symptom of using a vm, that is a symptom of bad coding.

You have already been warned about "joke" scripts - and your "victim machine" comment in this thread gives me reason to believe that you have not yet taken that warning seriously. Just be aware that you are now on very, very thin ice and need to tread extremely carefully from now on if you wish to remain part of this community.

As to the mass replicating compiled script, did you name it as "Notepad.exe" and also have a line within it such as "Run('Notepad.exe')" expecting it to open the Windows app? That is the most common cause of a script calling itself recursively.
