CryptTool.Agent is a generic detection for crypttools. A crypttool is a type of riskware that is used as a tool for encrypting/obfusticating binaries. Riskware, in general, is a detection for items that are not strictly malicious, but pose some sort of risk for the user in another way.
Malwarebytes can detect CryptTools and protect against them in real-time.
Malwarebytes can remove CryptTool.Agent without further user interaction.
