    FakeAlert-MY.gen (Trojan)


    ePolicy Orchestrator 4.5.0 (Build:8.5.1)
    AntiVirus 8.5

    I have currently received a outbreak of around 5 machines being affected by the above Trojan. The issue has been dealt with but would welcome any ideas on to how i can protect myself from this in future?

    The machines that were infected were updated to the latest DAT.

    To delete the FakeAlert.TrojanFactory files and folders:
    1. Using your file explorer, browse to each file and folder listed in the Folders and Files sections.
    Note: The paths use certain conventions such as [%PROGRAM_FILES%]. These conventions are explained here.
    2. Select the file or folder and press SHIFT+Delete on the keyboard.
    3. Click Yes in the confirm deletion dialog box.
