    How do I remove "Trojan:Script/Wacatac.C!ml"?


    I ran a Full Scan of my computer on Windows Defender for the first time in a while today, and after about an hour or so Windows Defender flagged up that there was a threat present in my computer called "Trojan:Script/Wacatac.C!ml". Windows Defender told me that this is a severe threat, so I quarantined it but then Windows Defender told me that the "Remediation [was] incomplete", the quarantine failed, and that "This threat or app might not be completely remediated."


    So, I ran a Microsoft Defender Offline Scan and after my computer restarted, I ran another Full Scan to check whether the threat had been removed now, however, halfway through the Full Scan, Windows Defender closed itself. I installed any Windows 10 updates I needed to install in case that was the issue, but still, the Full Scan keeps stopping halfway through.


    I'm completely clueless as to what to do at this point, I'm not sure how far the virus could have spread across my system. I'm also not sure how long this virus has been in my computer either, this is the first Full Scan I have done in my computer for a while.


    Does anyone know how to remove this virus?


    Thank you!

    :)

    Virus Trojan:32/Wacatac.DC!ml not completely remediated on Windows PC

    This is a "Backdoor" trojan. Read about it here: Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.D!ml - Virus Lists and Removal Steps

    These are the most dangerous, and most widespread, type of Trojan.

    Backdoor Trojans provide the author or ‘master’ of the Trojan with remote ‘administration’ of victim machines. Unlike legitimate remote administration utilities, they install, launch and run invisibly, without the consent or knowledge of the user. Once installed, backdoor Trojans can be instructed to send, receive, execute and delete files, harvest confidential data from the computer, log activity on the computer and more.

    If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums.
    You should consider them to be compromised.
    They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one, if not an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.

    Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech.

    How do I remove "Trojan:Script/Wacatac.C!ml"?

    Virus Trojan:32/Wacatac.DC!ml not completely remediated on Windows PC

    Can anyone assist?

    Earlier today a .zip file was downloaded onto my Windows 10 PC which contained a Trojan:32/Wacatac.DC!ml virus. I am not sure if the virus was run or not but it was detected by Windows Security.

    As a precaution I have performed a System Restore in Windows but I still see the following message in Windows Security (allowing for some security details to be blacked out):


    How do I remove "Trojan:Script/Wacatac.C!ml"? [​IMG]



    The only Action allowed for the above is Allow and all the affected items, as can be seen above, appear to be in the Downloads folder.

    Neither Windows Defender or Malwarebytes indicate a problem in the Downloads folder, but can anyone suggest a tool that I can use to verify that the virus has been removed?

    Also, is it possible for me to seek to clear the warning above, and does anyone know how that can be done?

    Thanks
