A generic detection has identified a program or file that has code similar to advertising software associated with a popular Chinese search engine.
Generic detections are broad patterns of code or behavior that are used by security software to identify programs or files. If you suspect the detected file has been incorrectly identified, go to: Removal: Resolving a False Positive.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security program, it will either prompt you for a desired action, allow the program to run, block access to the program but leave it in place, or move it to the quarantine where it cannot harm your device.
If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to allow the program to run. You can also change the settings of the F-Secure security product to exclude it from further scanning. Note: you need administrative rights to change the settings.
Security programs will sometimes unintentionally identify a clean program or file as harmful if its code or behavior is similar to a known harmful program or file. This is known as a False Positive.
If you suspect the detected file is a False Positive, you may take the following actions:
In most cases, a False Positive is fixed in a subsequent database release. Usually, updating your F-Secure security program to use the latest database is enough to resolve the issue.
You can check by first updating your F-Secure security product to use the latest detection database updates, then rescanning the file.
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it to F-Secure Labs for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you will need to first collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
