Is anyone aware of this threat, how dangerous it is, and which site I may have gotten it from by visiting?



  • Hello @JayT08,

    When 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 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 from the article below to learn how to deal with the malware:

    It's difficult to identify the source of the threat just by looking at that code string, it could come from anywhere. In the event the infection is still present and can't be removed manually, check out this article for more information about disinfecting a computer from outside Windows.

    I hope the information is helpful.
