Definition Edit

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

Overview 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, Back Orifice, and NetBus.
