We have received samples of Glieder.H variant late on August 31st 2004. Originally it was detected by us as 'Bagle.AK', but then the name was changed to 'Glieder.H'. The origin was an email message that was spammed to numerous people. The email contains an archive named FOTO.ZIP. Inside there's an HTML file and an EXE file named FOTO1.EXE.
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.
This FOTO1.EXE file that was spammed in emails is a dropper. It drops and activates a DLL component that kills processes belonging to updating components of several anti-virus programs:
ATUPDATER.EXE AUPDATE.EXE AUTOTRACE.EXE AUTOUPDATE.EXE FIREWALL.EXE ATUPDATER.EXE LUALL.EXE DRWEBUPW.EXE AUTODOWN.EXE NUPGRADE.EXE OUTPOST.EXE ICSSUPPNT.EXE ICSUPP95.EXE ESCANH95.EXE AVXQUAR.EXE ESCANHNT.EXE UPGRADER.EXE AVXQUAR.EXE AVWUPD32.EXE AVPUPD.EXE CFIAUDIT.EXE UPDATE.EXE NUPGRADE.EXE MCUPDATE.EXE
Then it attempts to download to download a file from several websites. The list of URLs is hardcoded in the program's body.
