I use a program called Paint Shop Pro which has various plugins one can use to enhance images.
Tonight I ran Malware Bytes and it found 2 "Malware Packer.gen" files. I googled this to see what it was and there were a lot of links, but in reading them, got more confused the more I read.
The scan did show where the files were and they were in one of the plugin folders for Paint Shop Pro. I have used these files for about 5 years now with nothing ever being found by Avast or Malware Bytes.
Now all of a sudden I had these files -- I did quarantine them first to do some research and finally did delete them.
Can someone explain to me in "laymen's" terms what a malware packer.gen is please?
