trojan:Win32/Fuery.A!cl


Recommended Posts

I had Windows Defenders Periodic Scan turn on at one point.  I checked it today and it just happened to be turned off for some unknown reason.  I turned it back on and ran a scan.  I was then notified that it detected trojan:Win32/Fuery.A!cl and quarantined it. I then had Defender remove it. I also have Kaspersky Total Security 17.0.0.611(e), and Malwarebytes 3.1.2 comp 1.0.139 update version 1.0.2088.  I'm just curious as to why Kaspersky AND Malwarebytes DID NOT catch this trojan thing during scans or with real time protection.  I will be posting this on Kaspersky's forum to see if they can answer as to why their product failed to see this also.

Malwarebytes does a Threat Scan daily.

Thanks!!

With KTS, there is no need for either WD or MBAM. In this case "more" is not "better", and may actually be "worse"

That is bad info/advice considering you are posting this on Malwarebytes help forum.

Surely you know that it is not good advice to run multiple overlapping antimalware/antvirus/antixyz products simultaneously. To ignore pointing that out does a disservice to those who misunderstand how thee products function. Set truth free and let the user decide.

Malwarebytes is designed to be able to run alongside an AV program.  And KTS turns off Windows Defender. When allowed in settings WD runs periodic scans

You make it seem wrong to run the setup the poster posted about. It is not in this specific case.

I'm fully aware how "thee products function", and, apparently, so does Porthos but thanks non-the-less.
