Trojan:W32/Bedep engages in advertising fraud by forcing the affected device to visit unsolicited websites. These sites typically generate profit from displaying advertising content, which increases with a higher volume of web traffic.
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.
Trojan:W32/Bedep is distributed as part of the payload of exploit kits.
Once installed on a device, Bedep creates a hidden virtual desktop that hosts an instance of the Internet Explorer web browser. It then uses this instance to quietly browse websites and generate fraudulent web traffic, without the user's knowledge.
Bedep is also capable of downloading additional malware onto the user's machine.
