Trojan.malware.300983.susgen is a malware detection that could potentially indicate that there’s a Trojan Horse virus located on the computer. Trojan.malware.300983.susgen gets detected by the Ad-aware security tool in various types of files downloaded from the web.
Most users who have reported that the trojan.malware.300983.susgen virus was detected on their computers have scanned a certain questionable file with the VirusTotal malware-detection tool. VirusTotal uses a number of different malware scanners to give detailed results about the files users scan with it, and in the case of trojan.malware.300983.susgen, this detection comes only from the Ad-Aware scanner, which is included in VirusTotal. None of the other scanners included in VirusTotal show this detection, which has led a lot of users to believe that the trojan.malware.300983.susgen detection might be a false positive. Though there’s certainly a chance that this could indeed be a false positive, if you have a file on your computer that triggers the trojan.malware.300983.susgen detection, then you should be careful with it. If you don’t need that file for any particular reason, it’s best to delete it. It would also be a good idea to perform a thorough check of your computer for other questionable data and potentially unwanted/harmful software that may need to be removed, especially if you’ve already interacted with the suspicious file.
What is trojan.malware.300983.susgen?
Trojan.malware.300983.susgen is a potential malware detected by the Ad-Aware security tool in various files. Though there’s a chance that the trojan.malware.300983.susgen detection is a false positive, users who’ve encountered it are still advised to check their systems for malware.
If the file in which trojan.malware.300983.susgen gets detected is something that you need, and now you are wondering whether to risk opening the file in spite of the malware warning, our recommendation is to not interact with the file without at least making sure that anything malicious that might be in it is prevented from harming your PC. Basically, what you can try is to use a sandbox environment to run the file and see if it’s safe before you start using it. Many security tools and antivirus suites offer sandbox features that give you the option to safely run and test files in an isolated environment before you decide whether they are safe for your system. This is what we think should be done with any files shown to contain the trojan.malware.300983.susgen virus. Of course, this is only relevant if you actually need to access and use the file. If you do not, deleting the suspicious piece of data is always the best option.
Trojan.malware.11973.susgen is a variation of the trojan.malware.300983.susgen malware that’s typically detected by Ad-Aware in archives downloaded from file-sharing sites. The trojan.malware.11973.susgen detection is often a false positive, but it could also be a serious malware threat.

Indeed, this could truly mean that there’s no actual threat in the scanned file. However, we believe that safety should come first, which is why it’s important to not overlook such warnings and instead try to do everything you can to ensure that your system is indeed safe. As mentioned, trojan.malware.11973.susgen gets detected in different archive files and other pieces of data that come from the Internet, while some of them may be perfectly safe, others may contain potentially unwanted or even dangerous components. For this reason, if you have one or more files on your PC that trigger the trojan.malware.11973.susgen detection, we strongly recommend completing the guide we’ve shown on this page in order to ensure that there’s truly no malware located on your PC

Trojans, in general, can be very dangerous and if there’s a hidden Trojan virus in a file on your computer that gets detected as trojan.malware.12132270.susgen or trojan.malware.300983.susgen, you shouldn’t ignore and overlook the warning. Although false positives are not uncommon, you shouldn’t rely on that possibility and open the flagged file/files without a safety net.
