Removal

Automatic action

Once detected, the F-Secure security product will block the suspect file until further user confirmation is received.

Exclusion

If you are aware of and accept the potential risks, you may choose to exclude this program from future scans by the F-Secure security product.

If you suspect a file has been incorrectly identified as malicious, (that is, it is a False Alarm or False Positive), please first ensure your F-Secure security product is up-to-date with the latest detection database updates, then rescan the suspect file.

If you continue to suspect a False Alarm, you may submit a sample of the suspect file to our Security Labs for further analysis via the Submit A Sample (SAS).

Suspect a file is incorrectly detected (a False Positive)?

A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:

  • Check for the latest database updates

    First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.

  • Submit a sample

    After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.

    NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.

  • Exclude a file from further scanning

    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.

    Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
