What is HTML/Crypted.Gen



HTML/Crypted.Gen is a malicious JavaScript or VisualBasic code. Attackers use this code to encrypt malicious files in order to escape notice by anti-virus programs. Anti-virus programs detect the malicious code but cannot identify the threat, so they use HTML/Crypted.Gen to detect the encryption code.
