Virkel is a backdoor with IM (Instant Messenger) spreading capabilities. It was first found on October 26th, 2005. The backdoor can provide a hacker with information about a system, work as a proxy, update itself, perform a Denial of Service (DoS) attack, open remote shell, download files. It also kills processes of anti-virus and security software and blocks access to many different sites that belong to anti-virus and security software vendors.
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.
