RAT (Remote Access Trojan)

Recommended Posts

Hello, Could any of you help me? I'd like to know how to detect a RAT (Remove Access Trojan). On YouTube, there are some messages in my "Sent" box, that I have never sent which is unusual. And my computer has been running extremely slow lately. Do you know how I could detect one? It'd be much help.

I looked at my APPDATA with CMD, And there were two things; "desktop.ini" & "G-Force Prefs (WindowsMediaPlayer).txt"

I don't know what the "G-Force Prefs (WindowsMediaPlayer).txt" file is at all.

Is there any program that can detect RAT's? It would be extremely helpful in this case.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

RATs are trojans and if you had one, MBAM would probably detect it. If you had one, you would be experiencing worse symptoms.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post only DDS.txt directly into your reply.
