The F-Secure security product will automatically block the file from running.
If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to allow the program to run. You can also change the settings of the F-Secure security product to exclude it from further scanning.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
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 to F-Secure Labs 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.
When a file or program is first launched, F-Secure's security programs verify its safety from the Security Cloud file reputation service. If it cannot be verified, DeepGuard starts to monitor its behavior. DeepGuard automatically blocks files or programs that try to make potentially harmful changes to the system.
This detection indicates that a file tried to make potentially harmful system changes. For example, the file may have tried to:
If done with malicious intent, such changes can compromise the security or the integrity of computer or mobile device, or the data stored on it.
