It is a detection for a harmless file created when the virus Viking.F infects files.

Brief Description 

    

When the virus Viking.F infects a file, it creates another file called _DESKTOP.INI in the same directory as the infected file. The file created only contains the infection date of the original file.

That file is harmless, and only indicates that the computer was infected by Viking.F at a previous time.

Panda Security solutions detect this file as Viking.F!ini.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Viking.F!ini is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
