[In Progress] TR/ATRAPS.Gen Active & Everywhere

By Craig Snyder

  1. I use Avira as my AV and regularly run their quick scan. Just this morning I ran a full scan and nearly every single active process on my machine (including winlogon.exe, svchost.exe, etc.) is claimed to be detected with "TR/ATRAPS.Gen". I have no idea how I got this. With so many files being infected, I can assume these are not false positives? As it's affecting core system files, I also assume I can't quarantine anything. How can I go about removing this infection?
