Home Malware Programs Trojans Trojan.Badur


Posted: January 31, 2020

Trojan.Badur is the detection name that many antivirus products use to describe a malicious 'PDF' file that is likely to be meant to deliver a malicious payload to your computer. The good news is that you are likely to be safe, as long as you remember not to open unknown PDF files, especially if they ask you to provide them with permission to execute additional code. Keep in mind that these PDF files are often disguised as relevant documents that you might be interested in seeing, and the attackers may use all sorts of social engineering tricks to get you to follow their commands.

The PDF files that are likely to be reported as Trojan.Badur by your antivirus product might be spread via other methods as well – they may be advertised on social media or forum boards, and they may also be found in the form of pirated eBooks and textbooks. The best way not to execute a malicious PDF file on your computer is to invest in the cybersecurity features offered by state-of-the-art antivirus products.

Recently, cybercriminals have been piggybacking on the panic around the Coronavirus outbreak in order to distribute fake PDF newsletters regarding the virus. As you can probably guess, the PDF files in question are meant to deliver a dangerous piece of malware.
