HaxRat is a cloud based remote android management suite in simple word it is a Android RAT, powered by NodeJS. It works in Linux and Termux (Android).

haxrat github tool made by hax4us control android remotely
Previously we have featured an article on L3MON, HaxRat is based on L3MON but much more powerful then L3MON. It have some extra features like screenshot, screen recording, front and rear camera recording. This is developed by Hax4us (Lokesh Pandey). The Key features of HaxRat are following:

  • Screen Recorder.
  • Rear Camera Recorder.
  • Front Camera Recorder.
  • Lock Device.
  • GPS Logging.
  • Microphone Recording.
  • View Contacts.
  • SMS Logs.
  • Send SMS.
  • Call Logs.

  • View Stub Permissions.
  • Live Clipboard Logging.
  • Live Notification Logging.
  • View WiFi Networks (logs previously seen).
  • File Explorer & Downloader.
  • Command Queuing.
  • Built In APK Builder.
We can easily install this suite on Linux , we also can install it on our Android phone by using Termux.

Installing HaxRat on Kali Linux

The installation process is the same as we did in our L3MON tutorial. We have detailed discussion on our that post So we are not going to explain the commands.

First we install JRE in Kali by using following command:
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre
Then we download NodeJs in our system by applying following command:
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_13.x | sudo bash -
Now we install NodeJs by preceding following command:
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
Now we need pm2 process manager to install this we use following command:
sudo npm install pm2 -g
Now we clone haxRat from it's GitHub repository by using following command:
git clone https://github.com/Hax4us/haxRat
Then we navigate to server directory under haxRat by using cd command:
cd /haxRat/server
Then we need to install dependencies by using following command:
npm install
Then we start the server by using following command:
node index.js
Now we can see our server in our browser http://localhost:22533 there will be a login page as following screenshot:

haxrat login panel

Now we stop this server by using CTRL+C command. Now what to do ? Login ? But where are the credentials?  We have talked before how to create a custom credential on our older L3MON tutorial. Otherwise check the haxRat GitHub repository for default credentials.

After login we can see the main page as shown in the following screenshot:

haxrat dashboard termux

Now we go to the APK Builder page and give our local IP address and click on build.

If got  error like "Wrong java Version installed....." this when building APK then try following command:
sudo update-alternatives --config java
Then Then we type 2 and enter.

Then we stop our running haxRat server by CTRL+C and start it again this problem will be solved.

Now we can build Spy APK and send it to victim, whenever victim install it and grant the permission. Or if we got victim's phone in hand then we can implement this.

We got the victim in our haxRat dashboard like following screenshot:


haxrat dashboard

Now in the manage section we can manage the Android device totally. Magics will start from here.

Installed Android Apps
File Manager
Recording from front Camera

Installing HaxRat on Android (using Termux)

This is easy to installed in Termux. We try following commands one after another to install and configure haxRat.
apt install nodejs
git clone https://github.com/hax4us/haxRat.git
cd haxRat/server
npm install
mkdir ~/haxrat
haxrat
node index.js
In our browser we navigate to http://<Local IP>:22533 and we will be the login screen of haxRat.

This video by the developer is described how to install haxRat in Termux / Android:


This is how we can start the haxrat server and take control of any android device on our local network. We also can run this on wide network or internet by using PortMap service.

      You may, otherwise you can try another method and generate your custom username and password . Go to our L3MON tutorial. This tool is based on L3MON so that will work finely.

              This problem comes because you don't have npm. You need to install it by using following command:

              sudo apt-get install npm

              Thanks.

                    Hello Shinnbe, We are sorry for that is not working. I had talked personally to the developer of haxrat. He says me that he didn't getting time to update this tool, may be he discontinued this project and archive this.

                      The npm file should be in /usr/local/bin/npm. If it's not there, install node.js again.

                            To solve this we need full information that how you have installed it. We suggest a re-install for more details try the video. We think that apktool.jar file is missing from it's path or you might forgot to use sudo.

                              Did you cloned haxRat from github. We think you need to do it again and follow our instructions carefully and you need to be in the right directory. Is says that you don't have these directory in our system, so please check it by ls command.

                                    Do you have complete tutorial setting portmap to use haxRAT over internet?
                                    Is the localhost:xxxx port is the port I should fill on the app builder?
                                    I've tried many times, but has no luck
                                    Thankyou

                                        It's looks like you doesn't have installed Java in your system. Try following command to install it and follow the tutorial then:

                                        sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk

                                            We can suggest you no-ip services. This will make your dynamic IP static. Else you can ask your Internet service provider for a static IP (they might charge extra for it). No-Ip is a free service you can try it.

                                                    Yes! In the case of WAN port forwarding is mandatory. Otherwise other devices can't reach to our network from the internet. We already have an article on this. Check SSH port forwarding without router article.

                                                            RAT's and Malwares is seems to be not so ethical. Many of group members will take advantage of it for illegal things. We more focus on ethical things and security. In our current group there are lot of newbies. They are just learning things. They will learn the things we just need to help them. We will be a strong community/family. If we allow such type of things we will become a black hat team. That's what we don't want. We want to be a community of security experts not hackers. Hope you will understand.
