Security programs will sometimes unintentionally identify a program or file as harmful if it has code or behavior that resembles known harmful programs. This is known as a False Positive.
See the Technical Details section for a list of the latest known False Positives, and the relevant remedial database updates.
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.
False Positives sometimes occur if a program or file contains code or behavior that is similar to known harmful programs. This is especially likely if the program or file uses compression or protection techniques, or is spread using a distribution method, that are commonly used by harmful programs.
