PDF Infected ? - UDS:Trojan.PDF.Badur.b - UDS:DangerousObject.Multi.Generic

Recommended Posts


I also recently downloaded a PDF file that my KTS 2019 showed being infected by a UDS:Trojan.PDF.Badur.b.
KTS disinfected it promptly and (after a brief message "cannot disinfect") deleted the downloaded file as well as the browser's (Chrome v72.0.3626.109, 64bit) cache version.
Well done!

I am still curious what kind of threat this Trojan.PDF.Badur.b actually is, so I entered it into threats.kaspersky.com, both with and without the UDS:...
Unfortunately, it reports "No search results".
Shortening the search to "Trojan.PDF" shows e.g. "Trojan.PDF.Badur":  "A PDF document “booby-trapped” with a link that leads to a site with questionable content."

Although in retrospect your naming convention makes great sense, it would still be helpful to emphasize to the user to shorten the search to a subset of the reported threat type -- unless you would eventually find the time to link threat names from the scanner's "Detailed Reports" page to a brief description as per your threats.kaspersky.com page.

But otherwise, I'd keep your priorities on keeping up with detecting and fighting the ever growing cybersecurity threats...
