Automatic action

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.

Suspect a file is incorrectly detected (a False Positive)?

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.

The attached downloader file name is 'www.citybankhomeloan.htm.pif' - it is an executable file that pretends to look like an URL. The downloader fetches NEHER.GIF file from the 'saher.by.ru' website, saves it to a hard drive as an executable file and activates it.

After activation, the main trojan's file copies itself with a random name to Windows System folder and drops a DLL file that also has a random name. The trojan acts as a proxy - it allows remote hackers to connect to Internet through an infected computer. The connection between a hacker's computer and an infected computer is encrypted.

The trojan connects to www.valenok.red-host.com site to fetch specific data and to report an infected computer's IP address.

The trojan contains the following text strings:

Neher(HEXEP) coded by HangUP Team (commercial version).
