A program or technique that takes advantage of a vulnerability to remotely access or attack a program, computer or server.
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 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.
The detection Exploit:W32/AdobeReader.UZ identifies a malicious PDF document that attempts to exploit a known vulnerability in order to drop and run a malicious executable file on the system.
The exploit-code will not drop the executable if any of the following folders exist on the system:
The executable file embedded in the PDF will be dropped to:
The dropped file will then be executed and will attempt to download additional files on to the system.
We detect the drooped file as Trojan-Downloader:W32/Agent.MRL.
