VirTool:Win32/Obfuscator.XZ

Alert level: Severe Detected with Windows Defender Antivirus

Also detected as: No associated aliases

Windows Defender detects and removes this threat.

This threat has its purpose obfuscated, or hidden.

It uses a combination of methods including encryption, compression, anti-debugging and anti-emulation techniques to hide its true purpose.

Malware can be obfuscated with a tool that uses a hacked license. This means non-malicious programs that use the hacked license can also be detected. If this happens you should contact support at the company that provides the non-malicious program and ask for a version that doesn't use the hacked license.
