Virus.Ramnit

Short Bio

This is a generic detection for files that are infected with the Ramnit malware.

Ramnit is a versatile family that holds viruses, worms, and Trojans. They are capable of infecting EXE, DLL, and HTML files on an affected system.

Remediation

Malwarebytes can remove the infected files, but if the infection has been active for a while, this usually leaves the affected system unusable, since vital files may have been infected and removed. If this is true, we recommend making a backup of important files that do not have the EXE, DLL, and HTML extensions and reformatting.
