  2. Quarantined Trojan:JS/Flafisi.B

    Trojan:JS/Flafisi.B threat description

    When Windows Defender detects and quarantines a threat you are protected and the quarantined item/file/threat cannot harm your computer anymore. Also: Quarantined items will be removed automatically after some time.

    That being said...

    Why you cannot find/see a Remove possibility, I do not know.

    I'm not a Windows 10/Windows Defender user so I'm not 100 % sure that the below from this site (
    copied/pasted info is correct (later EDIT: info is not correct. See my other replies!):

    On Windows Defender Antivirus for Windows 10 version 1703 and later:

    • Use the Windows search box to find and open the Windows Defender Security Center
    • Navigate to the Virus & threat protection > Scan history.
    • Under Quarantined threats, select See full history
    Once you have reviewed the quarantined items you can:

    • Select Remove all to delete all quarantined software.
    • Select individual files, and then click Remove or
    • Select Quarantined items and then View details. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

    I've seen other posts on a similar threat detection for Flash Player where the user also said he didn't have the Remove option...

    See here:


    Suggestion to upload the detected file to MS:
    Submit files for malware analysis

    and to also upload it to VirusTotal and/or any other service listed here:

    In addition you might want to run some scans with one or the other tool mentioned here:

    Same malware detected by Win 10 Defender repeatedly & quarantined repeatedly

    This situation is increasingly troubling. For about a month, Win 10 Defender has been notifying me every few days it has detected & removed malware. When I open Defender for details, it lists either Rogue:JS/TechBrolo.A or Rogue:JS/TechBrolo.E and I find
    it hasn't actually removed the malware, but quarantined it. I don't understand what is being done when malware is "quarantined" or why Win 10 doesn't remove it. It is strongly recommended in Defender that I do so, but I have to check the box and click Remove.
    Which I do. I've also scanned offline, done quick scans and one full scan, none of which turned up anything.

    Why is Win 10 quarantining but not removing it? Is there any way of indicating to Defender not to allow any file with string Rogue:JS/TechBrolo in the file name? Defender says it is a Trojan Horse type. Since it is repeatedly directed at my PC and I assume
    sits there until Defender finds and at least quarantines it, am I at risk between Defender scans? Or does "Real Time" protection mean that risk doesn't exist?

    I'm puzzled too at the file name. I would think malware would have innocuous sounding or highly technical seeming names. "Rogue" and "Tech" together ... might just as well name the file LethalMalware.

    It’s also relatively easy to disable Windows Defender's automatic remediation in Windows 10, if that’s something that you’d like to do:
