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.

The worm is able to hide the following items:
When the worm is active, it hides its own process, file and launch point in the registry.The worm installs a call gate through \Device\PhysicalMemory to execute part of its code in kernel mode (ring 0). The kernel-mode code replaces the following function pointers from the system service table:
This allows it to hide files, registry keys and values. In addition, the worm is able to modify kernel-mode process structures to hide any process it specifies.
Before spreading, the worm looks for email addresses in the victim's Windows Address Book (WAB) file and also in files with the following extensions:
