Generic.Malware/Suspicious is Malwarebytes' detection name given to files which trigger our generic criteria for suspicious files. This means they show characteristics that lead to believe they are malware.
Malware, or “malicious software,” is an umbrella term that describes any malicious program or code that is harmful to systems.
Hostile, intrusive, and intentionally nasty, malware seeks to invade, damage, or disable computers, computer systems, networks, tablets, and mobile devices, often by taking partial control over a device’s operations.
Malwarebytes protects users from Generic.Malware/Suspicious using real-time protection.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove Generic.Malware/Suspicious without further user interaction.
You can use the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Nebula console to scan endpoints.
Choose the Scan + Quarantine option. Afterwards you can check the Detections page to see which threats were found. On the Quarantine page you can see which threats were quarantined and restore them if necessary.
If you recognize the detected file as legitimate, please let us know so we can whiltelist the file. If you are not sure, keep the file in quarantaine. When we receive a copy through our telemetry we will investigate and give it a detection name that tells you more about what it is exactly.
