hello, this is the first time i found a virus on my pc since i’ve always been careful, but this time a browser extension, that i’ve been using since years (it had also over 500k download), was corrupted.
my antivirus didn’t detect anything, but the browser (Brave browser) told me that the extension was malicious so i deactivated it and i started a full scan with my antivirus (not kaspersky), at the end it found nothing, but since i like different opinions i did the full scan with another antivirus and it also found nothing.
so i kept using my pc normally for 3 weeks and then one of my friend told me about the kaspersky virus removal tool and yesterday i tried it.
so i started the full scan with the kaspersky virus removal tool and it found 2 viruses connected to the extension.
those are the viruses “HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic” and “not-a-virus:HEUR:AdWare.Script.Generic” both are located in C \users … \appdata \local \bravesoftware \brave-browser \userdata \defaul \extensions \“the name of that extension (the ID of the esxtensione that you see while in developer mode)” \”the version of that extension” \js \background.js (for the first one, trojan.script.generic) and \js \contentscript.js (for the second one, adware.script.generic)
now i have a few question because i never had a virus before so i don’t know what to do and because, at the end of the scan i selected just “delete” (after the scan you have to choose what to do whith those viruses, like “skip” ,”delete” ,”copy to quarantine”,ecc..) but i accidentally pressed the enter button and the tool started another scan (who found nothign this time).
now, if in the tool, i click “quarantine” i see those 2 viruses and i also read this here https://support.kaspersky.com/15675 that the files are stored on my pc and can be accessed and something like this so my questions are.
-am i safe now or i need to do other things? what should i do?
-since after the scan i just selected for both “delete” and pressed enter, what happened to those files? on the scan report i see (in this order) scan (started) - detected (the trojan) - detected (the adware) - scan (finished) - select action (delete) - select action (delete) - disinfection (started) - quarantined - quarantined - deleted - deleted - disinfection (finished). i also see that the extension is still on the browser
-is there any chance to see which kind of virus the trojan is? one is an adware (that is not a big deal) but the other one is a trojan and i used the pc for 3 weeks. the pc wasn’t slow, i didn’t see anything strange, while idle the cpu and disk usage are normal (from 0 to 2%) but i know almost nothing
my operating system is windows 10 and the kaspersky tool version is 22.214.171.124
sorry for the long post and for all those questions but i really feel bad for this and i’m not sure what to do now
