Removal

Automatic action

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.

Suspect a file is incorrectly detected (a False Positive)?

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.

Technical Details

This program has been packed by the PeCancer packer program (hence the name of the detection).

Samples identified by the same detection perform one or more of the following activities:

  • Drop suspicious files or a copy of itself onto the system.
  • Set launch points to itself, or to the files it drops.
  • Some samples attempt to connect to and download from suspicious/malicious websites, for example:
    • hxxp://downxml.[..].cn/iepop/list/[..]
    • hxxp://downxml.[..].cn/iepop/update/[..]
    • hxxp://soft.jajaca.com/[..]
