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 WordMacro/Strezz virus consist of three encrypted macros: AutoOpen, FilePrint and FileSaveAs. Each of them contains the following comments:
Virus : STREZZ.WinWord Author : Dark Love & Lady Love
When the virus infects the global template, it removes the following menus from Word, making it impossible to view the macros of the virus:
File/Templates File/--------- File/Macro View/Toolbars Tools/Macro Tools/Customize Format/Style
Strezz activates when files are printed. At this time it removes the Edit/Undo menu and prints the following text before the original document:
STRESS '97 Special for my love by The Free Hackers Viroright (C) 1997 Internation Virus Research If you have bugs, please call me and don't stress for it! I will back laler!
The above extra lines can easily go undetected by the user if he's using a fax driver to fax the document directly from Word.However, after the printing (or faxing) has finished, the virus displays the following text:
You are STREZZ now, I'm sorry for it! [IVR] - Internation Virus Research
