Script Snh-gen trj
« on: July 15, 2020, 03:46:03 PM »
Hello!
When I open Microsoft office file from desktop, Avast shows alert like in attachment.
When I open same file from any other place nothing happens.
Maintained full check - no viruses.
It started yesterday.

Consider this malcode detection also in the light of this warning:
Trojan/Win32.Wacatac (MS) a.k.a. Script Snh-gen trj (avast) is being abused in spyware attacks by APT groups,
