what exactly does ''Gen:Variant.Zusy.54658'' do, I read that it's adware or something, I'm quite interested in what it is because I've had it on my disk for many months and I didn't feel anything, I didn't expect it from a text file a ''virus'' can be given
should i take any steps on my computer? changed passwords etc? I would like to understand what it is and why it is malicious, thank you.0
Gen means generik detection, Variant means a type of, Zusy here refers to a type trojan, so the detection simply means its a variant of trojan.
Run a full system scan with bitdefender and if nothing gets reported, you are clean and do not have to do anything.
More information on how a trojan works can be find in below stated link

I did a full scan, nothing was found, but what should I do? can it steal passwords and personal information? should i change my passwords?0
Sure you should go forward and change your password for your own security and satisfaction. If bitdefender full system scan did not showed anything malicious, then your system is safe and secure.
