RAT is an acronym for Remote Administration Tool and is a program that runs on a person's computer and can then be remotely accessed through another computer. Although there are legal uses for remote administration tools, they are often installed and used without proper consent and can be spread through malicious software. They generally have a few different types of functions such as remote desktop, registry editor, as well as process manager capabilities.
