Virus.VBInject is a generic name for virus threats that obscure their code to avoid being detected. As an overall package that protects internal code, Virus.Win32.VBInject can be configured to perform almost any kind of malicious attack. Some common types of Virus.VBInject attacks include disabling Windows security programs, installing malicious programs, restricting your use of user account settings and abusing the Windows Registry to allow Virus.VBInject to start whenever Windows starts. The extreme variability of any possible Virus.Win32.VBInject infection means that you should assume that this threat is potentially urgent and needs to be removed using the best anti-malware software that’s at your disposal.
Virus.VBInject: The Wrapper Around a Not-So-Tasty Payload
The Virus.VBInject label may be used for virtually any threat that uses a common method of obscuring Virus.Win32.VBInject’s code. This concealment tactic uses Visual Basic to create a loader that can hold almost any sort of malicious code. Since the internal code is encrypted, Virus.VBInject may avoid being detected by otherwise effective security programs.
What distinguishes a Virus.VBInject threat from a standard Trojan is the fact that the internal payload is never installed in the form of a separate program. Instead, Virus.VBInject keeps the code internal while running it, insuring that Virus.VBInject’s payload remains hidden both before and after installation.
A brief sampling of some of the Virus.VBInject threats includes VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!CR, VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!E, VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!BZ, VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!DN and VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!EE.
Some Common Virus.VBInject Attacks to Parry Away from Your PC
Unfortunately, Virus.VBInject infections don’t have any set symptoms that would allow you to identify them. On the contrary, many types of Virus.VBInject will inject their processes into native memory processes and avoid showing any signs of their presence.
However, some Virus.VBInject attacks are more common than others, and can include:
- Some variants of Virus.Win32.VBInject will attempt to disable security-related Windows features, including your UAC or User Account Control features and the Windows Firewall.
- Many forms of Virus.VBInject that have been seen attacking the Windows Firewall are also known for downloading and installing other harmful programs onto your PC. This can include keyloggers that record keyboard input, rogue security programs that create fake infection warnings, worms, viruses and other Trojans.
The vast amount of possible Virus.Win32.VBInject threats makes manually removing Virus.VBInject an exceptionally difficult chore. Instead of trying to identify and delete all Virus.VBInject components without help, it’s strongly encouraged for you to use an anti-malware program. Update your software before scanning your computer and launch your system scans in Safe Mode to maximize the chance of removing Virus.VBInject.
