Septer is a trojan that disguises itself as a Red Cross donation application. The trojan is written in Delphi and is Windows PE EXE file 518 kilobytes long. When run it shows a form where it asks a user to donate to victims of terrorist attacks in USA on 11th of September.
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 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.
The form looks like that:
When a user fills his name name, company, address, phone, email, credit card info and clicks 'Donate Now' button, the trojan saves all this information into CCTAKER.INI file in encoded form. Then the trojan attempts upload the file with stolen info to a website.
