In this article series we will profile a trojan in action, as exemplified by a fictional, but all too possible scenario. The trojan that will be used is Optix Pro, and I have deliberately not included a link to it. For those of you who wish to play with it in a lab setting then I am sure you are savvy enough to find it. Optix Pro is very much a full featured RAT, aka remote administration tool. It is surprisingly functional with its rich set of commands, and could very easily be a commercial tool were it not for its underground roots.
