Suspect a file is incorrectly detected (a False Positive)?

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 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

This Trojan variant is a PE executable file that is packed with a custom-made file compressor. Upon execution, this Malware tries to download a file from the following website:

  • http://upd.dns-look-up.com/[Removed]

The Trojan uses the "KRSystem v1.0" as an user-agent ID and it accesses the website with a specially constructed URL. The downloaded files will be stored in the directory for temporary files:

  • \%Temp%\%random%.exe

%random% stands for a randomly generated name. If the download operation is successful, the Trojan runs the downloaded files afterwards. This particular Trojan variant downloads another downloader that in turn downloads the second level downloader. That file can download additional components and adware to the infected computer. The downloaded adware is Lop.com related.
