On the site http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal there is a list of the latest malware to be found in the wild. Has anyone found a "wildcard" definition file to eradicate these without manual steps? Sadly, our vendor says this can't be done but after reviewing the screen shots and the registry entries, all of these appear to be built on the same algorithm and base code. So, I'm thinking that if a definition file could be composed to destroy this base code, the manual intervention for each instance could be eliminated.

Thoughts from anyone?

I don't think the people that make malware removal utilities are interest in destroying them "in the wild" .
if they destroyed them BEFORE anybody got them they would put themselves out of business.
