This is not a virus, but a hoax warning about one. This hoax is not related to the DaBoys 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.
In March 1996, the following hoax warning was circulating in the internet:
There is a new Virus out there that is a total pocket book killer. It is called the DuBois virus and when it hits you, it hits right in your pocketbook. when an infected program is executed, every individual RAM IC chip in your computer will explode! And if you don't get the virus removed from your hard drive before you power up the machine again after replacing all RAM, POOF!! It blows all the RAM again!!!!! KILLER!!!
Obviously, such virus does not and could not exist. Ignore the warning and inform anybody who is spreading this warning to stop doing it.
