This is a resident file virus which infects COM files.
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.
When an infected file is executed, the virus will install itself in memory and reserves 2048 bytes for itself although its size is only 992 bytes. Virus hooks INT 13h, INT 20h and INT 21h.
Virus contains a counter which is incremented every time when a disk is being written to or formatted. When the counter reaches 766, virus terminates the current program with INT 20h and displays a message saying 'Virus in memory !!! Created by 21.I.1990 - PMG\OTME - Tolbuhin ...' and hangs the computer.
When an infected file is executed, the virus will infect one COM file found in the current directory. Virus will not infect files which are smaller than 416 bytes. It doesn't infect COMMAND.COM either.
If an infected file is executed on the 15th day of the month, virus overwrites 9 sectors from the beginning of the disk and hangs the machine.
Somewhat longer variants.
