Technical Details



Rogue:W32/WinFixer.gen!A is a Generic Detection for variants in the Trojan-Downloader:W32/WinFixer family.

About Generic Detections

Unlike signature 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, please see Other:W32/Generic.
