Rootkit.Fileless.MTGen is Malwarebytes’ generic detection for fileless infections that use a rootkit to hide their presence. In the majority of cases, they use registry keys designed to run PowerShell commands that carry out the rest of the infection. Other such commands, we’ve also seen the mshta command.
Malwarebytes protects users from Rootkit.Fileless.MTGen using real-time protection to block the trojans that install these rootkits.
