X97M/Divi is an Excel macro virus.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security program, it will either automatically delete, quarantine or rename the detected program or file, or ask you for a desired action.
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 to F-Secure Labs 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.
When an infected workbook is opened, this macro virus creates an infected workbook to the Excel's startup directory, "BASE5874.XLS".
After that all closed or saved workbooks are infected.
The virus also adds an variable to every infected workbook. The variable starts with a string "IVID" and ends with a hex number.
Beside that, the virus does nothing but replicate.
X97M/Divi.B is functionally identical with X97M/Divi.A.
Divi.C is functionally the same as Divi.A
When an infected workbook is opened, X97M/Divi.D creates an infected workbook to the Excel's startup directory, "874.XLS". Otherwise this variant is functionally identical with X97M/Divi.A.
