Technical Details



Detection names starting with 'Virtool' are Generic Detections for utility programs that can be misused to access a computer system and perform actions that may be unauthorized by the machine's primary user.

About Generic Detections

Unlike more traditional detections (also known as signatures or single-file detections) a Generic Detection does not identify a unique or individual malicious program. Instead, a Generic Detection looks for broadly applicable code or behavior characteristics that indicate a file as potentially malicious, so that a single Generic Detection can efficiently identify dozens, or even hundreds of malware.For more information about Generic Detections, see the Other:W32/Generic description.
