Anserverbot.A communicates with a command and control (C&C) server to report to and to obtain further commands.


Once the scan is complete, the F-Secure security product will ask if you want to uninstall the file, move it to the quarantine or keep it installed on your device.

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.

Technical Details

Anserverbot.A is a harmful program that communicates with a command and control (C&C) server, reporting to and awaiting for further commands.

It employs complex obfuscation techniques to hide its integral information such as the C&C server it communicates with, or the string and method names it uses. Additionally, it implements a self-protection mechanism to prevent itself from being repackaged.
