Generic.Trojan.Dropper.DDS is Malwarebytes' detection name for dropper Trojans 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.
Trojans can be various types of malware that hide their true intentions and then exploit systems once they are inside. Common infection methods for Trojans include:
Dropper Trojans are often the first stage of an attack that takes place on an affected system. They are small and designed to download and the actual payload.
The Malwarebytes’ Katana engine detects unknown threats as Generic.Trojan.Dropper.DDS by using generic detections, Machine Learning, and other Artificial Intelligence techniques to protect users from malware that has not yet been classified.
