Expiro.A is a Windows executable file infecting virus. It is also capable of stealing credit card information gathered from the affected 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.
Expiro.A is a Windows executable file infecting virus. It is also capable of stealing credit card information gathered from the affected machine. Upon execution, this virus recursively looks for link files (.LNK) inside drives C: to Z: starting from the root directory and subdirectories and tries to infect the link's target Windows executable. Infected files grow in size and four additional sections are appended at the end of each file. The following describes the appended section details which includes the name, virtual size and physical size, respectively.
Expiro.A creates a duplicate file alongside of infected files named with an .IVR extension. This identifies files it has already infected. Example:
This virus steals credit card information via a keylogger scheme. While the virus is active in memory, it monitors and logs credit card information and steals user input data that may be triggered when browsing one of these sites:
Expiro.A creates the following mutex when it is running and active in memory:
