    First, format your whole system and change all your passwords.

    Future Security Messures:

    Install Lastpass Browser Plugin (Encrypts your passwords locally, hackers cant extract them)
    Never use executable files from sources you dont trust.

    Do they tried to blackmail you?

    Back your shit up and reinstall windows. Those RATs won't go away with an antivirus quarantine, especially if it's rootkit.

    Theres nothing you can do really. If you want to bite them back, you can find their IP address via a Skype resolver and DDOS them or something.

    Im curious how they acquire these things. They have my IP address, so I'm curious if I can prevent them from DDoSing me, and I want to make security measures to prevent this. I also want to know how these RATs work and how they are acquired for retaliation. I can acquire the IP if you explain the Skype tracker. You guys, ironically seem like a great community.

    Can you explain the Skype tracker? I also want to know if there is protocols to prevent things like this occurring on the future. Also, can you, or somebody explain these RATs to me, and how they work. :)

    No, but they easily could. I bought the Infinity Cash tutorial from him for 5 USD, and I paid him for him to provide me SMTP hosting but I don't want to contact him anymore. I am stuck in a hard spot, but obviously I have to wipe and forget about him. If you know somebody that could guide me through the last bit of set up with the associates/infinity cash type thing with bulk emails that would be great. He knows my info now, name, address, steam pass, email pass, PayPal pass, banking pass, which I've all changed, however he still knows my identity. Honestly I know only a little about hacking etc, so I actually started shaking when he began to type "stalker" in the Chrome bar and proceed to troll and show me screenshots of me and tell me all my user and pass information.

    Even if you change passwords,the hacker will know the new details too.Because RAT is still on your PC and its storing your keystrokes.

    1:Just backup important files to USB Drive or something.
    2:Format Entire hard disk.
    3:Install new OS
    4:Now change all your passwords again,also add 2 factor authorization to your email.

    RATs are one of the most dangerous viruses. They just don't have access to all of your computer, they can see saved passwords on your browser, access your webcam remotely, take itself and install itself in like 20 different places, are invisible from task manager, and are constantly updated so even the newest antiviruses can't catch them.

    The safest thing to do is cut your computer off the internet. If you can't do that, block these ports from the router:

    http://www.anti-trojan.org/port_opened.html

    When you do that, he can't access your computer anymore because RATs communicate over the Internet.

    Then backup your documents and pictures and reinstall Windows. Once you do that, the threat is gone and you can unblock the ports (or leave it on in case of another attack) and turn your internet on.

    In order to prevent one from happening again, NEVER install shady exe's. If there is an .exe in the name of the file, don't open it. For example, if the RAT name was ttxt.exe, file extension changers will change it to texe.txt.

    There is also something called binding, which means they will attach the RAT to a file such as .jpg or .doc files. So you gotta be careful there as well.

    A Skype resolver takes the username of a Skype contact and finds the IP address. Just search "Skype resolver" on Google and you'll find a lot.

    That's about it.

    Ill pay you a fortune for a jpg exploit for executables, that was possible over 13 years ago but was patched over a decade ago.

    not sure what you mean but you can easily embed and encrypt a rat inside a jpg/pdf etc and make it FUD

    LOL No offense to anyone but half of the ppl on this thread have no idea what they are talking about
    First of all RAT is not a virus (yes its dangerous in wrong hands but its not virus lol)
    If extension of exe is changed it wont execute so txt so that theory goes of (I think you meant on other technique used but you probably described it wrong)
    Embeding to pdfs and similar yes but as payload, which most of them wont do as they can do way better things that way.

    +1 on this
