Options

action to be taken for treatment?

Please understand that this question is a translator, so there may be grammatical errors.
I'm currently using the free version of bitdefender.
But when I was using the system scan, I was informed that Gen:Variant.Application.Jacard.131537 infected the file. I told them to restart to solve this problem
It was restarted with successful as loading appeared on the black screen.
After that, I went into bitdefender and it says that I blocked the files infected with Gen:Variant.Application.Jacard.131537.
Was Gen:Variant.Application.Jacard.131537 a malware?
Then, is my laptop already in trouble?
Additionally, the issue with Gen:Variant.Application.Jacard.131537 is completely resolved through bitdefender, so there is no need for additional action to be taken for treatment?
