The last but not least, if one of the machine is attacked by HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic, others within the LAN (local area network) will also be under attack. Therefore, it is still necessary to enhance the network security awareness.
HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic worms into a machine mainly by attacking the vulnerability in Script, “a small non-compiled program written for a scripting language or command interpreter”. Such technique is the one that helps most of the busy and oblivious PC users to log-into accounts. Once it has been captured by HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic, it will be utilized to record confidential information such as log-in credentials.
But the very first thing that the Trojan horse does is not to steal the information. Something must to be set to guarantee a convenient access to the information. Once HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic finds vulnerability in the installed program, it would numerate drivers concerning security services, programs and processes to degrade the overall defense so that no automatic removal can drive it away before collecting confidential information.
With the modified driver, the related processes will be affected to execute the commands released actually by HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic. Even though the behaviors are suspicious and breaking the security policy, with the background processes, the computer will just follow the commands. In such case, HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic manages to call the internal services easily to gain easy access to the valuable information stored in the target machine.
Once the desired information is collected, HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic would transfer it to its remote creator through the backdoor it opens up. The Trojan horse can also help generate money by alleviating the installation of additional virus, Trojan horse especially. Therefore it is advisable to remove HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic as soon as possible in an attempt to stop any further harms. Below is the instruction to show how when security utilities fail. Follow the steps carefully only when certain level of computer skills and virus knowledge are available; otherwise, please do start a live chat and get specialized technical help from VilmaTech Online Support.

(tip: HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic would affect all detected restore point to stick to a target machine.)
Step2. Remove restore file that HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic may use to restore the removed items.
Step3. Restart the affected machine and get into Safe Mode.
Step4. Show hidden files and folders to unveil the items hidden by HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic.
Step5. Remove all the files in the following listed folders.

Therefore, one should check if there’s other infections apart from HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic; if so, please remove any so that HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic will not be triggered after the removal. If you do not know how to take down the additional infection, you can either seek the corresponding solution in VilmaTech virus reservoir or consult security assistance to get quick fix according to your concrete situation.
The restore point should be created and built after HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic has been certainly removed completely and thoroughly. Be noted that the System restore functions cannot help remove a virus most of the time as virus nowadays has been developed with the capability of using restore point for persistent stay. But then creating a restore point could relieve the mechanical damages and inconveniences that would deter quick fix before additional infections are brought in to consolidate its settlement.
