Short bio

Virus.Ramnit is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name 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.


Malwarebytes protects users from Virus.Ramnit by using real-time protection.

Home remediation

Malwarebytes can detect and remove Virus.Ramnit without further user interaction.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  2. Double-click MBSetup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  3. When your Malwarebytes for Windows installation completes, the program opens to the Welcome to Malwarebytes screen.
  4. Click on the Get started button.
  5. Click Scan to start a Threat Scan.
  6. Click Quarantine to remove the found threats.
  7. Reboot the system if prompted to complete the removal process.

However, if the infection has been active for a while, this usually leaves the affected system unusable, since necessary 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 then reformatting.
