Security programs use generic detections that look for broad patterns of code or behavior to identify similar programs or files. If you suspect the file was incorrectly detected, go to: Removal: Resolving a False Positive.
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 detection database 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 to F-Secure Labs 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.
This malware is discussed in further detail in the following Labs Weblog posts:
The downloader is known to be distributed to users via a malicious website (driveby download) or via an exploit.
When active, the downloader downloads an encrypted file on port 443 or 80 from:
where (encrypted file) is a defined string. This string is unique in every sample.
Once downloaded, the encrypted file is first saved in an allocated memory where it will be decrypted, then saved to a file in a temporary folder. The file will then be executed.
The encrypted file is encrypted with an RC2 encryption algorithm. The Cipher Hash that is used in the decryption is based on a defined string that is also unique in every sample.
