Summary

Trojan:JS/Obfuscated.Gen is a Generic Detection that identifies malicious HTML, Javascripts, PDF, or any scripting files that contain obfuscated code, which may be used by malware authors to evade antivirus signature detection, as well as making malicious scripts harder discover and analyze.



Disinfection & Removal

Automatic Disinfection

Allow F-Secure Anti-Virus to disinfect the relevant files.

For more general information on disinfection, please see Removal Instructions.



Technical Details

Obfuscated script is usually found in exploits embedded in malicious HTML and PDf files, which are commonly found in the wild; such files may have damaging payloads, such as downloading additional malicious files and executing it.


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.
