Hello everyone. In this article, we will discuss another penetration testing tool known as “RAT-el.” RAT-el is a free and open-source penetration testing program that lets you make Remote Access Trojan (Rat) and take control of a Windows PC or android device. It operates on a client-server model, with the server sending commands and the client executing them and sending the results back to the server. Anti-virus software has no way of detecting the client.
Introduction – What is a remote access trojan?
We’ll have to go back to the tool’s main directory. You must now modify the IP address, port number, and name of this tool to suit your needs.
The payload will be saved in the “payload” directory once it has been constructed. You can now send it to the victim via any online or offline service.
Alright 😛 !! Look at below, windows defender security is enabled.
Return to your primary Kali linux machine and configure the server to capture the client session. When the victim clicks on the malicious client service, the connection is now formed.
We have no idea what exactly we need to do after getting the session, so we will execute the “-h” command to see all the commands.
You can see all established sessions by using the “-ls” command.
Usage 😛 –target < ID >
Using the, we can now run all of the commands associated with the cmd prompt on the target system. by using
Activate CMD Prompt
Also you can activate CMD prompt by executing the following command.
The persistence module is loaded during Windows startup which we can also create.
It also contains a function that allows us to broadcast any message to all valid sessions at the same time. We have disseminated the message of opening the file explorer in each system, as shown in the figure below.
BOOM 😛 !! As you can see the file explorer prompt is activated in every system which means it works perfectly.
