Trojan.Agent

Short bio

Trojan.Agent is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name for Trojans. It is used for detections that are either associated with no specific malware families or not enough information is available to pinpoint the malware family. Often, you will see it paired with other detections as parts of an infection that goes beyond a single family.
