After my last article on email phishing, I am back with a completely new hacking topic – hacking computer remotely. This software called “Prorat,” is used to hack computers remotely.
The RAT acronym stands for Remote Administration Tool. A RAT is a software, popularly used to control other computers remotely.
Some examples of RATs are:
Yuri RAT and many other.
Working of RATs:
To hack a computer remotely using a RAT, you have to create a server and then send this server to the victim whose computer you’re trying to hack. Generally, this server is binded to any file, like a picture or song, so that whenever the victim opens the file on his computer, our server is installed. This server opens a port on the victim’s computer, allowing you to remotely hack the device via the open port.
This RAT server then sends all system information to PRORAT, allowing us to then hack the computer.
Things you can do by hacking computers remotely:
Once you gain remote access to the computer, you can perform any of the following:
# Install a keylogger
# Monitor chat windows
# Shutdown computer remotely
# Take control of system registry
# Hack locally stored passwords and licence keys
# Download additional malware and servers to gain stronger control
# Control and access all Control Panel options (including add or remove programs)
# Send various error messages
# Access printer services
# Erase all disk data by formatting drives
# Open FTP connection and start file transaction
Thus, you gain total control of the computer. Hence, why this software is very popular.
Disadvantage of Remote Hacking Software RAT:
The main disadvantage of the RAT software is that the server created to hack into the computer remotely is recognized by most antiviruses as a hack tool, and antiviruses send alert messages when installing a RAT server.
Luckily, there are many software options like Binders or Crypters that hide RAT servers and prevent antiviruses from sending alerts. There are even softwares like AVkiller which render antivirus software inactive, allowing our server (used to hack computer remotely) to be easily installed on the victim’s computer.
This is all about RATs – software used to hack computers remotely. In my next article, I will discuss server creation and installation on remote computers.
