W97M/Assilem is a Word 97 macro virus.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
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.
W97M/Assilem.A activates on open of an infected document, and it then infects the global template and all documents that are closed after that.
Beside replication, the virus inserts a string to the active document when the number of day and the number of minutes are equal:
Twenty-two points, plus triple-word-score, plus fifty points for using all my letters. Game's over. I'm outta here.
This is the same phrase that is inserted by the W97M/Melissa virus as well.
