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.
Variants in the Fakeinst malware family appear to be installers for various (possibly legitimate) applications. While active however, the Trojans send SMS messages to premium rate phone numbers or a subscription-based paid service.
The core functionalities of the variants are very similar, with only slight variations in the implementation and code . for instance, one variant uses single SMS sending, whereas a later variant may use asynchronous and threaded SMS sending.
These Trojans are widely distributed and use randomization techniques to evade detection by antivirus products.
