This program is packed using a packer program associated with numerous other malware.
Security programs will sometimes unintentionally identify a program or file as harmful if it has code or behavior that resembles known harmful programs. This is known as a False Alarm or False Positive (FP).
In most cases, a False Positive is fixed in a subsequent database release.
Usually, updating your F-Secure security product to use the latest database is enough to resolve the issue.
If you suspect a detected file is a False Positive, you can check by first updating your F-Secure security product to use the latest detection database updates, then rescanning the file.
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 will need to first collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
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.
Microsoft also provides enterprise-level instructions for excluding files from scanning by antivirus software.
This program has been packed by the PeCancer packer program (hence the name of the detection).
