Definition Edit

A remote administration tool (RAT) is a program installed on a system that enables a remote attacker to gain access to the system as needed.

Discussion Edit

Most RATs grant full access to the system's functions and data. This may include the ability to watch everything that appears on the system's screen, or to have remote control over the system's devices, such as webcams, microphones, and speakers. Well-known RATs include SubSeven, BackOrifice, and NetBus.
