Brief Description 

    

Prorat.GG is a backdoor that allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer in order to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed on the computer.

It sends the gathered information to a remote user by any available means: email, FTP, etc.
