Trojan.Shellcode is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name for Trojans that run shellcode on affected systems in order to launch malware or download additional malware.
Users of affected systems may see quick glimpses of command prompt windows while Trojan.Shellcode is performing its actions.
Trojan.Shellcode on Windows systems often uses powershell or cmd scripts to download or execute other malware.
Trojan.Shellcode can originate from various sources including infected email attachments and exploit kits.
If Trojan.Shellcode has run on an affected system you are likely to find other detections on the same system due to the nature of the infection that requires the presence of other malware or because it has downloaded additional malware.
Malwarebytes protects users from Trojan.Shellcode by using real-time protection.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove Trojan.Shellcode without further user interaction.
You can use the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Nebula console to scan endpoints.
Choose the Scan + Quarantine option. Afterwards you can check the Detections page to see which threats were found.
On the Quarantine page you can see which threats were quarantined and restore them if necessary.
