Threat Database Trojans HiddenObject.Multi.Generic


By GoldSparrow in Trojans

Certain reputable security programs have been detecting HiddenObject.Multi.Generic infections on some computer systems. In many cases, the HiddenObject.Multi.Generic detection indicates a corrupted file on the infected computer. However, HiddenObject.Multi.Generic detections may be broad and non-specific, meaning that a HiddenObject.Multi.Generic could also indicate a false positive. One symptom of problems on your computer is the crashing or freezing of your security software after detecting a HiddenObject.Multi.Generic infection. This may mean that an unsafe component present on your computer is interfering with your security software and your computer's performance, in order to prevent you from detecting or removing it effectively. If you suspect that a threat is present on your computer, PC security analysts strongly recommend attempting to remove it with a strong anti-malware program that is fully up to date. If you suspect that it is a false positive or your security program fails to remove a supposed HiddenObject.Multi.Generic infection, it may be necessary to report this issue to your security software's manufacturers or try again with a different security application.

How Threat Detections Like HiddenObject.Multi.Generic Should be Handled

Although many sources may classify HiddenObject.Multi.Generic as a virus, PC security analysts have observed that a HiddenObject.Multi.Generic may not be specific enough to determine whether an object is a virus, a Trojan or completely harmless. However, it is important to treat HiddenObject.Multi.Generic detections with concern, especially if your computer is presenting other symptoms along with the HiddenObject.Multi.Generic detection. If your security software detects a HiddenObject.Multi.Generic infection and the following symptoms are also present on your computer, PC security analysts strongly counsel a quick action to protect your computer from threats:

  • Decreased system performance, such as slowing down, crashing, freezing or the appearance of the dreaded Windows Blue Screen of Death.
  • Problems connecting to the Internet. Web browsers affected by threats may redirect computer users to unwanted websites or display pop-up windows, as well as taking longer than normal to load normal Web pages.
  • The appearance of unwanted software or files on your computer. If new files are present without your interference, it is possible that they were downloaded and installed by a threat.
