Generic.Adware.Agent.DDS is Malwarebytes' generic detection name for adware that has the sole intention to show advertisements on affected systems detected by Malwarebytes' Katana engine.
The detection names are produced by Malwarebytes 4 and Malwarebytes business products. These generic malware detections are due to our new automated signature system called BytesTotal and specifically the DDS engine that are based on Machine Learning technology with 100% autonomous learning which don’t require any human interaction to correctly identify malware. These techniques are part of Malwarebytes’ Katana engine and were developed for automated mass detection of wide ranges of malware and adware.
Affected systems show advertisements not related to or originating from any of the sites they are visiting. Generic.Adware.Agent.DDS is also used to detect the adware components of bundlers.
The Malwarebytes’ Katana engine detects threats as Generic.Adware.Agent.DDS by using generic detections, Machine Learning, and other Artificial Intelligence techniques to protect users from malware that has not yet been classified.
