The TTY demystified
The TTY subsystem is central to the design of Linux, and UNIX in general. Unfortunately, its importance is often overlooked, and it is difficult to find good introductory articles about it. I believe that a basic understanding of TTYs in Linux is essential for the developer and the advanced user.

Beware, though: What you are about to see is not particularly elegant. In fact, the TTY subsystem — while quite functional from a user's point of view — is a twisty little mess of special cases. To understand how this came to be, we have to go back in time.

infodox/python-pty-shells: Python PTY backdoors - full PTY or nothing!
The following is a collection of bind and reverse shells which give you a fully working PTY.

This is far superior to a normal bind or reverse shell, as you have job control and an interactive PTY and can do such things as use nano/vi to write files, su to elevate privs/change user, and ssh onward. You can also CTRL+C and suchlike.
