Threat Database Malware Heur.advml.c


The Heur.advml.c detection is used by certain anti-malware and security solutions to flag suspicious behavior that could be associated with the activities of malware. More precisely, it is a cloud-based heuristic detection with the goal of identifying previously unknown malware based on certain behavioral patterns. However, if you see a file triggering a Heur.advml.c security alert, it doesn't automatically mean that the file is threatening or part of a malware threat. In fact, chances are that the Heur.advml.c alert is a false positive. Especially, if you know the source of the file and its intended functionality.

Still, dismissing the Heur.advml.c detection could be a risky proposition. If possible, scan the file with another professional anti-malware solution and see if something suspicious will again be picked up. You also can examine the file yourself for details that are out of the ordinary. After all, it is better to be safe than to allow Trojans, RATs, info-stealers, ransomware, and other malware threats to be deployed by threat actors to the infected device. The consequences stemming from such infections could be dire with victims losing access to their data and then being blackmailed into paying exorbitant ransoms, having their accounts compromised, or having funds siphoned out to digital wallets controlled by the cybercriminals.
