A Remote Administration Tool is a special kind of hacker spyware, used for remote access and control of other people’s computers. The attacker infects the PC via the e-mail or File and Print Sharing. A “server” allows him to connect via a “client” on his own machine. The functions of a RAT may vary, depending on the needs of the hacker. Some RATs can’t really harm your PC and the only purpose they were made for is hooliganism. But some versions can steal vital information, delete files and even crash your system. This pest originated in February 2004. It was created by a group called Famatech. The authors claim it to be a useful tool for network administrators.
From the publisher:
“Our new Radmin Server is deeply integrated into the Windows core. The new server module provides a blanking of the remote screen, a disabling of the remote mouse and keyboard, a remote printing and full screen text mode support. With its new video hook driver for Win2K/XP you’ll enjoy an even faster speed!
We divided Radmin Viewer and Server into two separate packages, so you can install them independently. Radmin Viewer 3.0 beta is available for download right now. This new Viewer is fully compatible with Radmin Server 2.x (note, that some new features can be used only when connecting to Radmin Server 3.0). However, you can try using Radmin Viewer 3.0 to extend the functionality of the 2.1 version.”
