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.

Variant:Argentina, Xuxa, Anti-D, Dad

Several variants from Argentina, and probably all written by the same person. The first is 1249 bytes long and activates on various dates that are of patriotic significance in Argentina. The second is 1413 bytes long, and reported to play music in the afternoon. The third is 945 bytes and interferes with the "D" key on the keyboard. The last one is almost identical to the original - just with text messages translated to Spanish.
