Information regarding Trojan.GenericKD.71034459

Could you please advise regarding Trojan.GenericKD.71034459:

  1. What is the damage produced by virus (not just a it is a trojan.Generic)
  2. What is the sign of infection
  3. How to remove it manually

I remember that other programs (like Norton) provided this information for the user. I wasn't manage to find it in BitDefender so I suspect that this is a false detection.

Regards

    "Trojan.GenericKD.XXXXX" is a generic detection name used by Bitdefender to flag suspicious files or programs that exhibit behavior or code characteristics similar to known trojans. It's essentially a placeholder name given to a file before it's fully analyzed and categorized into a specific type of Trojan. Most of malicious samples available on the internet are detected by Bitdefender as "Trojan.GenericKD.XXXXX" only.


    If you believe that a website or file has been incorrectly blocked by Bitdefender, you can share the details with our malware researchers by filling out the form at the link provided below: https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/29358/

    If the website or file is indeed incorrectly blocked, the detection will be removed within a maximum of 72 hours. However, if the detection still persists after 72 hours, please consider the website or file as malicious, as determined by our malware researchers, and the detection will remain.

    Hello @banr,

    In addition to Flexx's insightful information above, to address the question related to malware removal, whenever Bitdefender finds an infection on your computer, it usually takes automatic action against it and gets rid of the malware without requiring any input on your side. To be sure the infection is gone, bring up your Bitdefender security program and click on Notifications in the menu on the left-hand side of the interface. Every time a critical event occurs, a counter can be noticed on the bell icon. Access the Critical tab, then click the entry concerning threat detection. It will show a short description of the action Bitdefender took on the malware, and the date and time when it occurred.

    If the Notification indicates that Bitdefender successfully blocked the threat, you are safe. Bitdefender already took care of the infection.

    On the other hand, if the Notification states that the threat could not be deleted, follow the steps below to learn how to deal with the malware:

    I hope the information is helpful.
