    Folder Identification


    file:C\users\AppData\Local\Packages
    MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\Cach\2E4PO6L\page{1].htm



    WD blocked Trojan:Win32/Ditertag.B listed in the above folder. Is this the general cache or a specific folder ?
    I assume this folder the attempted point of entry ?

    This is the 3rd attack with the past week. One was the same trojan, the other was a scam trojan (where you get the notice to call for assistance). All listed an Edge folder, similar, not sure if exactly the same. I did a clean install on 24 Feb and the latest attack was one day after, 25 Feb.

    Edge is not my default browser, used about <20% of time. Thoughts ?

    You path is a HTML files as such it can't be a Trojan but it can be loaded from a HTML is it a certain site your going to? I would set your DNS to 208.67.220.220 & 208.67.222.222 this is a very fast DNS but it blocks bad sites so should stop you getting near infected site

    Did you mean to say "your path is a HTM file ?" Trojans can't be loaded from HTM files, could you briefly explain the relationship ?

    Also, was I using the Edge browser when attacked ? Difficult to determine the site, as stated I use Edge less than 20% of time. Will try the DNS.

    Thanks !

    Edge was the browser in use when the attack occurred ?


    Appreciate your explanation and replies.
