The Backdoor:Linux/Meche family covers a wide base of variants that are based on the EnergyMech IRC bot. The bot is widely used by miscreants to compromise Linux installations.
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.
This detection also covers the text resource files of the bot.If your scanner detects text files with this detection but does not for some reason detect anything else we recommend a full system inspection to locate the binary files also.The binary files can usually be located by inspecting the cron configuration files and the /etc/rc* and etc/init.d folders.
