Guns'n'Roses Polymorphic Engine
The Guns'n'Roses Polymorphic Engine is a newcomer, written by a person calling himself Slash Wu. Like the Dark Slayer Mutation Engine, this generator originates from Taiwan - and it only comes with Chinese documentation.
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.
In the generator's documentation, the author prohibits the use of the generator in viruses and other malicious software. He claims to have developed GPE solely for the purpose of protecting data and programs from unauthorised use. These claims are lent some credence by the fact that the author has included his apparently real name and phone number in the introductory notes.
Version 1.00 of the Guns'n'Roses Polymorphic Engine was released in March 1994. So far, the generator is not known to have been linked to any virus. It's size is about two kilobytes.
