F-Secure Anti-Virus uses generic, heuristic methods to detect unknown harmful programs. These methods are not foolproof, and will miss some harmful programs while sometimes labeling clean programs as possibly destructice.
False alarms are especially likely if you are scanning all files on your system, regardless of the extension.
When you encounter a file labeled as "Possibly infected", send a sample to our sample submission address for further analysis.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either automatically delete, quarantine or rename the detected program or file, or ask you for a desired action.
