System Infected: Trojan Backdoor Activity 690
Posted: 23-Aug-2022 | 9:15AM · 7 Replies · Permalink
I constantly get a message that this threat has been blocked: Trojan Backdoor Activity 690
I've used the power eraser, but nothing has changed. (A screenshot of the alert is included.) Additionally, I ran a full system scan and did not find anything.
What can I do to resolve this problem? Is there an other software I should be utilizing to resolve this problem?
I'm running Windows 10.

I was indeed infected by this backdoor trojan... Norton indeed identified it as a powershell.exe and gives its full address in the description but it said it was located in DEVICES/HARDDISK3/SYSTEM/ etc. etc. and ended with powershell.exe. The problem is I have no HARDDISK 3 or any devices attached to my computer so it was obviously well embeded and hidden in my system somewhere and Norton was unable to remove it. Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool did the trick. It identified the trojan as you can see by the screencapture as a powershell.exe as did Norton. Let it do its magic and finally got rid of this little bastard. Will update if it comes back and will be paying attention to what if any app or program I use when notifications begin just in case but everything appears solved as of now. I was afraid of having to reformat completely the computer before it was completely hacked and locked which was my biggest fear. Will update to let you guys now if it came back or not.
