Remote administration tool

A Remote Access / Administration Tool (RAT) is software with which an IT professional can log in to all registered computers from one basic computer and manage them remotely. For example for problem solving, remote assistance and the proper functioning of the computers within the network.

Use of RATs by cyber criminals

Cyber criminals can use a RAT to use your computer for hacking purposes. They’ll send the RAT to you as an email attachment in the hope that you’ll open it. The RAT will then install itself on your computer. This is called a Remote Access Trojan. This can have very negative consequences.
