Threat Name | Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT
Summary | Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT is a generic risk that covers a wide variety of unwanted and malicious applications that have been identified by VIPRE's signature-based, heuristic, or behavioral detections.
Category | TrojanCategory1

Description |
Release Date | Apr 7 2009
Last Updated | Jul 2 2010 1 Trojan is a general term for malicious software that is installed under false or deceptive pretenses or is installed without the user's full knowledge and consent. Most Trojans exhibit some form of malicious, hostile, or harmful functionality or behavior.

2 High risks are typically installed without user interaction through security exploits, and can severely compromise system security. Such risks may open illicit network connections, use polymorphic tactics to self-mutate, disable security software, modify system files, and install additional malware. These risks may also collect and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without your consent and severely degrade the performance and stability of your computer.

Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT is just another name for the many types of FakeAlert malware often seen with Rogue security programs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_security_software).

As with most malware infections, the threat name may be different depending on the anti-virus or anti-malware program which detected it. Each security vendor uses their own naming conventions to identify various types of malware.

More effective free alternatives are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php) and SUPERAntiSpyware Free (http://www.superantispyware.com/?rid=3324).

Our scanners have picked up 1561 different versions of Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT, and they have all been noted as a security threat .No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because one anti-virus detected threats that another missed, does not mean its more effective. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.

Important Tip: Always remember that security begins with personal responsibility (http://www.symantec.com/connect/blogs/cyber-security-road-security-begins-personal-responsibility).

Dankie vir die inligting .... sÍ my asb nog net een ding kan ek dit saam met kaspersky gebruik ... want ek het gesien sommige van die programme kan nie installeer as daar reeds 'n ander is op die rek nie - dit vra dat die ander program eers verwyder moet word.

Dankie vir die hulp.

Enige een van Malwarebytes en SUPERAntiSpyware kan gelyktydig met Kaspersky gebruik word en behoort nie probleme op te lewer nie. Die vry weergawes van die program moet egter gereeeld opgedateer word en moet ook self die "scans" doen, verder is die programme geensins minder doeltreffend as die gekoopte weergawes nie. Dit is egter goeie praktyk om een van die twee programme saam met 'n antivirus program te gebruik as bykomende veiligheidsmaatreel.
