Remote Administration Tools

A Remote Administration Tool (known more commonly on the Internet as a RAT) is used to remotely connect and manage single or multiple computers with a variety of tools such as:

  • Screen/camera capture and control.
  • File management (download/upload/execute/etc.).
  • Shell control (usually piped from command prompt).
  • Computer control (power off/on/log off).
  • Registry management (query/add/delete/modify).
  • Other product specific function.

A remote administration tool is based on the server and client technology. The server part runs on a controlled computer and receives commands from the client, which is installed on other remote host. A remote administration tool works in background and hides from the user. The person who controls it can monitor user’s activity, manage files, install additional software, control the entire system including any present application or hardware device, modify essential system settings, turn off or restart a computer.

Remote administration tools are divided into malicious and legitimate applications. Parasitical RATs, also known as remote administration Trojans, are analogous to backdoors and have very similar functionality. However, they aren’t viral, do not propagate by themselves and usually do not have additional destructive functions or other dangerous payload. These parasites do not work on their own and must be controlled by the client.
