DreamStepFlash.A poses as Flash Player application, and directs users to an advertisement-filled mobile webpage.


Once the scan is complete, the F-Secure security product will ask if you want to uninstall the file, move it to the quarantine or keep it installed on your device.

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 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.

Technical Details

DreamStepFlash.A poses as a Flash Player application; it even places the legitimate program's icon on the home screen. But when launched, instead of opening up a Flash Player application, it directs user to a mobile webpage. This page is covered with a lot of banners and advertisements, most of which containing adult-rated elements.
