HTool-Mimikatz keeps showing up

Hi guys,

ENS on-Access Scan keeps detecting and deleting a Trojan called "HTool-Mimikatz". It finds a file mimi.dat in Windows temp folder which tries to access Windows Powershell. The point is that it keeps repeating and does not go away. Is there any final solution? The operating Systems on which it is happening are all Windows 7 SP1.

Re: HTool-Mimikatz keeps showing up

Hello @Former Member 

Thanks for your post.

I tried checking and would request you to refer the below:

Executing Mimikatz malware Prevents executables named mimikatz from running.
  • Report
  • Block
Protects against mimikatz malware by preventing it from executing.
TIP: Best practice: If you observe false positives, add the blocked processes to the exclusion list.

If this still not helping you and you need more information in regards the same please open a Service Request with the Support Team to check.
