    Windows Defender detecting Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml in a dotnet application that I wrote...


    Years ago I wrote a network test tool in dotnet. Over the years I have updated it to the latest dotnet version and added features and and new functions. Windows Defender just alerted me and deleted it saying that it had Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml in the exe. I know this is not true unless that trojan is in Visual Studio's compilation tools! It didn't even give me an option to allow it. It didn't quarantine it, it just deleted it. History doesn't show anything. It is showing in the event log though.What does this Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml even do? I'm trying to understand what Defender thinks

    :)

    Maybe check startup items for third party software that might run on boot and disable if not needed.

    On another note it's crap if it doesn't give you the file path.

    A harmless detection from my machine. Without knowing the file path or file name it's too hard to say what the issue is. If you had WiseVector StopX running when Defender detected the trojan I'd say it likely not serious.

    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):


    Windows Defender detecting Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml in a dotnet application that I wrote... [​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
