Pioneer.Virus.FileInfector.DDS is Malwarebytes' detection name for a family of viruses that infects executable files on an affected computer to download and install additional malware. The detection name is assigned by Malwarebytes’ Katana engine to the Pioneer virus.
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.
The Pioneer virus spreads by adding the virus code to other executable files. It searches the active memory and local drives for .exe and .dll files outside of the %windir% directory. It adds the malicious code so it will be executed before the actual code in the executable.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove Pioneer.Virus.FileInfector.DDS without further user interaction.
Infected files will be removed, not cleaned. This means that software on the affected system may have to be re-installed, or the system may become inoperable.
