The author of the Fu Manchu virus seems to have intended to write one of the most humorous viruses around. He started with the Jerusalem virus, removed the harmful part of it and added several new features:
The virus will censor the text the user types, deleting two four letter words.
It will also take action if the user types "Thatcher", "Reagan", "Botha", or "Waldheim". In those cases it will add comments to the text.
When Ctrl-Alt-Del is pressed, the virus will display the message
The world will hear from me again!
The author also corrected some minor bugs in the Jerusalem 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.
