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 uses "backdoor" abilities to gain the intruder a completely invisible access to your computer. This dangerous pest was created by a group called Magnum Imperium Ltd. The origination date is May 2000.
From the publisher:
"This utility consists of a single executable file, which runs as a console application under Windows NT. Unzip the archive that this software was delivered in, and place the REMOTE.EXE file in a directory of your choice. It is a good idea to keep any CMD files you will be using with REMOTE in the same directory as the executable."
