Trojan.Dropper.WXT.Generic

Short bio

Trojan.Dropper.WXT.Generic is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name for packed trojans that drop additional malware on an affected system.

Type and source of infection

Downloaders and droppers are helper programs for various types of malware such as Trojans and rootkits. Usually they are implemented as scripts (VB, batch) or small applications.

They don’t carry any malicious activities by themselves, but instead open a way for attack by downloading/decompressing and installing the core malicious modules. To avoid detection, a dropper may also create noise around the malicious module by downloading/decompressing some harmless files.

Sometimes they are packed to reduce the file-size, but usually they are packed to make reverse engineering harder.
