    Accidentally executed a suspicious Trojan/Snojan/Bitrep.A


    Hello, today I've downloaded an archive containing an .exe file that I executed in the first place into my secondary D: drive, the application was working fine, nothing happened. Then I moved the entire folder to C:\Programs, that triggered Windows Defender reporting a "Trojan:Bitrep.A" so I immediately removed it.
    I've done a full Malwarebytes, Windefender, Hitman Pro, Adwcleaner and Hijackthis scan, they have not reported anything, do I need to feel safe? Do you think is enough?

    What was the application? Maybe it was a false-positive.

    Hi.
    Snojan Trojan is an information stealer.
    I don't know what file you have, but Defender appears to have recently had some FPs (False Positives) on that item:

    False TrojanBitrep.A - Microsoft Community

    Electrum and Trojan:Win32/Bitrep.A? : Bitcoin

    So, depending on what archive you downloaded, you may want to change all your passwords.

    Do it gather all my saved passwords I've put in my applications? Like Mail, Chrome, Steam...?

    If it was indeed a genuine infection, then yes, you have to assume the worst (including your password to log into the computer).

    As long as I've put the archive in my seconday disk Defender triggered an moved it in quarantine, I executed the executable file in which the trojan was hiding but I was not able to understand if it was blocked or not. Anyway I'm gonna assume the worst. More information would be helpful as well.

    Perhaps a good, second opinion would be helpful:
    ESET Online Scanner
    Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET ESET

    Accidentally executed a suspicious Trojan/Snojan/Bitrep.A-image.png

    If the infection is properly quarantined, nothing will be found.
