This is a rather remarkable virus. It is long, 9216 bytes and able to infect COM and EXE files. The increase in file size is not visible though, while the virus is active in memory, as it uses several advanced "stealth" methods. Other effects of the virus are not known, but one infected program displayed the following message when run:
THE WHALE IN SEARCH OF THE 8 FISH I AM '~knzyvo}' IN HAMBURG addr error D9EB,02
Most of the virus is devoted to encryption and code which moves blocks of virus code around. This overhead results in a considerable slowdown of infected systems, which makes any infection easy to detect.
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.
