Is there something like a "Revenge-Rat" in Questions Posted January 18, 2018 6 minutes ago, Dave-ee Jones said: The RAT would need to have remote access details directly to your computer which would have to have some kind of willing security breach. In that case, why would you upload it online if it could remotely access your computer with the click of a button? And why not make a VM with a virus scanner on it and do some offline scanning, instead? I uploaded the file which would have granted me access if someone executed it. I also considered doing it with a VM, but I would have to download all these virus scanners, which is the advantage oft online scanners.
