RAT

RAT (short for Remote Access Trojan) refers to malware that allows an attacker to have remote administrator level control of an infected operating system. Once the malware has compromised a system, the attacker is free to do whatever they please such as: stealing personal/financial information, taking screenshots, stealing/deleting/altering files, accessing the system’s webcam if it has one, installing keyloggers, using the compromised system to infect other computers, etc.

Note: RAT can also refer to Remote Administration Tool.
