    virtool:js/obfuscator? Is this a virus?


    I was just looking at windows defender, I clicked all detected items and there were 2 things called VirTool:JS/Obfuscator.FQ and I was wondering, should I delete it? what does it do? is it a fake virus? here is what windows defendor had to say about it :

    The following error occurred:
    Error code 0x80508023. The program could not find the malware and other potentially unwanted software on this computer.
