This Remote Administration tool was created using Visual Basic programming language, by a hacker called SKiDKiD. The origination date is August 2000. The RAT was designed for creating mischief on victim’s computer and collecting vital data (passwords, bank accounts etc). This spyware uses “trojan” abilities to get access to user’s PC. It installs a “backdoor” in the system’s security allowing the intruder to connect any time he wants. And it uses “trojan” abilities to sneak in to the system.
