Threat description



F-Secure Anti-Virus had a false alarm on this virus on June 15th, 2001.

As a result, F-Secure Anti-Virus might have detected "Lamerman.512.c" in master boot record or in file SUHDLOG.DAT on some systems.


To get rid of the false alarm, update to the latest definition files. The problematic update was released at 07:54 GMT on June 15th. It was replaced with a fixed update at 09:37 GMT on the same day.

F-Secure would like to apologize for the trouble caused by the false alarm.

Technical Details

Either of these alerts are false. Lamerman virus is not in the wild. Lamerman is an old DOS-based multipartite virus. It was never widespread.
