Threat Description



Category: Malware
Platform: W32
Aliases: Bleem


Bleem is a PC software emulator for the Sony Playstation video game console.

There are two issues which relate Bleem to viruses

1. In April and May 1999, there was a trojanized version of Bleem in circulation. This trojan deleted some file when executed. This trojan is detected by F-Secure anti-virus software.

2. F-Secure Anti-Virus had a heuristics false alarm in the clean BLEEM!.EXE executable ("Possibly infected with an unknown virus"). This false alarm will be fixed in the future.


Automatic action

Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
