Removal

Automatic action

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.

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.

Technical Details


Variant:Doeii.A

W97M/Doeii.A infects document when it is opened or when a new document is created.

After the infection and when the document is opened, depending on a random number, the virus shows a message box:

w97.LAM, by LiFEwiRE [www.shadowvx.org]

with a title

...::LiFEwiRE::...

After this it replaces the contents of the active document with the following string:

LiFEwiRE2000 - www.shadowvx.org

and saves it with a password "pietje". This means that the contents of all documents encrypted with this password are lost.

Doeii tries to hook ToolsMacro and ViewVBCode menus by inserting a comment to the text

"(c) LiFEwiRE 2000 "

and the address of the above VX site (already closed).

The virus code also contains the following commented lines:
