This is a Remote Administration Tool that is used by hackers to control the victim's machine remotely. The possibilities of such application depend on the needs of the attacker. 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, remove files and even crash your computer. The author of this pest is a hacker called Kenny. The pest was written in Visual Basic and originated in December 2000.
