This is actually not a virus but rather a virus-construction toolkit, which can be used to create simple, easily detectable viruses in large numbers. Most of the viruses don't work properly, and the whole program is a rather shoddy piece of work.
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.
Variant:Chuang, Donatello, Enun, Earthday, Kinison, Venom,Yankee-tune
These viruses append their code to .COM files.
Variant:Pearl Harbour, Heevahava
Companion-type viruses, no better written than the other VCL-generated viruses.
This variant was found from South Africa in August 1994.VCL.Genocide is an encrypting direct action infector of COM files.When run, it will locate a COM file from somewhere in the hard disk, and infect it. The files will grow by 839 bytes.The virus will activate on the 1st of August. At that time, it will try to overwrite the boot sector of all available drives. Due to a programming error, this will only succeed with floppy drives, if they have diskettes inserted. Hard disk will not be affected.After the activation routine, the virus will beep and display the following texts on screen before hanging the machine:
* This was a very bad day to switch on the Computer! * --- Files Infected by the : Genocide2 Virus ! --- == Copyright (C) Invader Pro. South Africa 1994. == All data lost ... Have a nice Day!
This is an overwriting virus written with VCL. It displays the following text:
I am your VIRAL MESSIAH Follow me and be redeemed Your data doth exist no more The FAT holds ashes of your dreams
