Trojan-Downloader:W32/Wauchos connects to remote servers and downloads additional malware onto the infected machine.
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 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.
Trojan-Downloader:W32/Wauchos is distributed as disguised executable files attached to spam email messages.
If the attachment is run, the malware will attempt to contact multiple remote servers. If successfully contacted, it will then download additional malware onto the system, such as Trojan:W32/Cridex or Trojan-Spy:W32/Zbot.
