Trojan Horse

So I reinstalled my OS wiping out my data and reinstalling WIN 10. After all said and done setting up everything, and ran full scan with BIT Defender AV Plus. The AV found a PDF at AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Files\S0\4\Attachments\Statement[946].pdf that had Trojan.GenericKD.34805331. It took me a while why I should have this. I get phishing/scam emails and I forward them to the appropriate company the creeps are pretending to be. Example: [email protected] One of them must had an attachment. Because I forwarded it, the PDF is saved in my case at this location of outgoing mail folder of attachments. So I wish to warn that if anyone forwards suspicious emails with attachments to delete the email from the sent mail box and then deleted section.

It would be nice to have Bit Defender contact Microsoft to see if there is a way of deciphering which email the attachment belongs to notify the user so that your program can then delete the whole email upon users AV settings/request. May also want to ask them why their company mail server does not catch this attachment still:-)
