Brief Description 

    

Drp.gen is not really a virus, but a generic detection for a group of droppers that have the same characteristics:

  • The file that carries out the infection contains other Trojans, worms or viruses.
  • When this file is run, the viruses that the dropper contains are inserted in the computer.

These dropper files are considered a threat because the affected computer can be controlled from another computer through a program, or can be infected by other virus.

These files use the communication ports that are not protected.

Visible Symptoms 

    

As Drp.gen is not a real virus, there are no clear visible symptoms that indicate it has reached a computer.
