Kernel ICQ Pager

Posted: March 28, 2006

A Remote Administration Tool is a special kind of hacker malware, used for remote access and control of other people's PCs. 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. This RAT tool has a "notifier" function. Once the victim executes the "server" application, the pest will send a notification to hacker's e-mail that the infection was performed successfully. The author of this RAT is a hacker called Syke. It originated in October 2002.
