Nuker (generic description).

Nuker is a network-related trojan that allows an attacker to reboot, slowdown or crash a selected computer connected to Internet. Typically a nuker needs only the IP address of a target computer. When the IP address is entered, a nuker sends specific packages to a target computer and makes it restart, slowdown or crash.

Most famous nukers: Abomb, DoS, Nuke, WinNuke, Nukem.


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.
