This detection indicates that the program or file performed suspicious or harmful actions when it was run in an isolated virtual environment.
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 detection database 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 to F-Secure Labs 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.
To examine a program or file's actions more closely, the security product will run it in an isolated, tightly controlled virtual environment that mimics a normal computer system (a sandbox). The program or file's actions within the sandbox are monitored, and if it performs suspicious or harmful actions, it will trigger a detection.
The detection 'Memscan:[variable]' (where [variable] can be 'trojan', 'worm', 'virus' or similar) indicates that suspicious processes or components were found in the sandbox's virtual memory after the program or file was run.
