Re: Abbreviation of Malware Name


Ideally there would not be any web site that gives you with the abbreviation of any malware. However, they are categorized like RDN, Generic, Worm32, etc.. This is due to which the Anti-Virus detects these with their behavior and categorize them as per the pre-defined algorithms based on the vendor library.

However you may visit the virus total for any more detailed information as they use YARA engine and would perform the required testings in thier environment and would have the complete data before any other vendor.
