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.
A typical case of this scam is a one where someone opens a premium rate number at local telecom operator and starts sending SMS messages to random mobile phone numbers. A typical message contains some urgent message and instructions to call the number listed in the message.
If a person calls this number he will be connected to premium rate number which will contain recording intended to keep the user on the phone as long as possible. As the number where the user called is a premium rate number, he or she will pay for each minute spent connected to that number.
If you get an SMS message asking for you to call unknown number, either ignore the message, or if you are interested use the operators directory service to find out to whom that extension belongs. But do not call the number directly.
If you get email warning about such scam, please ignore the email and do not pass it on. If you want verification about the warning, please contact your local telecom operator.
