Hacker tracking via RAT
Although no security is truly impregnable against truly skilled hackers, I suspect majority if not most of hacks are perpetrated by those with limited technical skills, who are criminals in the first place, rather than skillful computer programmers performing illegal activities.  And those that simply purchasing hacking tools to perform criminal acts should be the main focus of combating cybercrimes. 

Currently there are limited tools for authorities to respond cybercrimes, especially at the local levels.  If unsophisticated "hackers" are simply the users of hacking software that generate most of the hacking activities and can be traced or tagged by reversed RAT hacking, it would give law enforcement decided advantages to identify and prosecute cyber criminals.
