What Is Remote Administration Tool (RAT)?
A Remote Administration Tool (RAT) is a piece of software that allows a remote “operator” to control a system as if he has physical access to that system. While desktop sharing and remote administration have many legal uses, “RAT” software is usually associated with criminal or malicious activity. Malicious RAT software is typically installed without the victim’s knowledge, often as payload of a Trojan horse, and will try to hide its operation from the victim and from security software.
The operator controls the RAT through a network connection. Such tools provide an operator the following capabilities:
Screen/camera capture or image control
File management (download/upload/execute/etc.)
Shell control (from command prompt)
Computer control (power off/on/log off if remote feature is supported)
Registry management (query/add/delete/modify)
Hardware Destroyer (overclocker)
Other software product-specific functions
Its primary function is for one computer operator to gain access to remote PCs. One computer will run the “client” software application, while the other computer(s) operate as the “host(s)”.
