The best feature of this app is that it works on HTTPS interface, which can cross any suspicious scan. There is almost no feature that can detect its presence.
According to these documents Hive has two basic functions i.e. “beacon” and “interactive shell”. Basically it works in two modes full featured mode & limited featured mode.
