A fairly harmless virus from Bulgaria - called "Eddie II" because it contains the string "Eddie lives". This string is similar to the string contained in the original "Eddie" 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.
Eddie II can infect .EXE files as well as .COM files, but unlike most other .EXE infecting viruses, it does not pad them so their length becomes a multiple of 16 bytes, before they are infected. Infected files are marked with a value of 62 in the "seconds" field of the timestamp, which makes them immune to infection by Vienna or Zero Bug. Infected files grow by 651 bytes, but this increase will not be seen if a "DIR" command is given, because the virus intercepts the "find-first" and "find-next" functions, and if the "seconds" field contains 62, the virus will decrement the file length by 651. Apart from this the virus does nothing of interest.
