Reputable anti-virus products have generic detection names that may be used to describe malicious files that have not been identified as a particular threat – one of these names is 'Trojan.Badur.' This definition frequently refers to a PDF file that may hide more than meets the eye – cybercriminals are able to craft fake PDF documents that are meant to execute a malicious piece of code that may bring malware to your computer. Such PDF files may be distributed via various means – phishing emails, eBooks, pirated textbooks, etc. Be very careful with the files you download from the Web, especially if they do not come from a non-trustworthy source. Of course, it is also recommended to invest in a reputable anti-malware tool that will alert you in case it identifies any harmful traits in one of your files.
The detection rates for the Trojan.Badur have been on the rise recently because of a new spam campaign that takes advantage of the massive amount of news around the Coronavirus. The criminals disguise the PDF files as newsletters or documents regarding the outbreak and use social engineering tricks to get users to open the attachments. Needless to say, you should not download and open unknown files that were sent to you by anonymous emails.
