Try the password infected - but it's a concern that your Quarantine folder wont open.
Was this detected as an Artemis infection? If so please post the number.
Thank you for that password! It worked. And then McAfee quarantined the file again.
It was not an Artemis infection. It said RDN/Generic.dx!d2v. Which confuses me because there's only one file in that folder that it keeps quarantining and it's not that one.
Yeah, it is worrisome to me too, especially considering that there was only one file - Although, now it's two files- in there. It shouldn't take so long to open with so few files in there, should it?
EDIT: I did look up RDN/Generic.dx!d2v, it says it's a Trojan, but it's not actually in the folder so I'm not sure where it would be.
Follow that link on what to do to prevent it being detected for at least a while and using GetSusp to submit it to the labs automatically. If you enter your email into GetSusp preferences they will notify you of the outcome eventually.
VirusTotal shows that many major anti-virus and anti-malware applications detect it, ESET even calls it a coin miner variant here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/12f4f5766652372796628816a10a08a0b912178d73815 c8cd65263b73577e577/analysis/
Thank you for your help Ex_Brit. And thank you for taking the time to actually look up the file as well. I think what happened was that because it was a patch file type, a lot of AVs read it as a virus. However, everyone else who has downloaded the program and had the same problem, said that once they got it to work, there was no issue, it was a false positive. I was able to get it to work though, by turning off Real Time Scanning (dangerous, I know, but it was legitimately the only way I could get it to stay in the folder) and using the password you gave me to put it back in the folder, I ran it, finished the installation and turned Real Time Scanning back on, it took the file out again, but the program works now, so it's no skin off my back.
Again thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it, I don't think I would have been able to get it to work without your assistance!
I probably would have done the same. Glad it's OK now ;-)
