Rootkit:W32/Regin is a complex espionage toolkit used to keep itself and other malicious components from being detected on an infected system. This malware has reportedly been used to target a variety of organizations around the world.
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 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.
Rootkit:W32/Regin is a technically sophisticated, multi-stage threat designed to remain hidden on an infected system, assist in keeping other components hidden from the system's security processes, and maintain covert communications with its remote controller.
Public reports indicate this malware has been used in targeted attacks against various organizations around the world. Analysis of the malware indicates that the threat has been in existence since 2008, if not longer. For more information, see:
