I have just removed an autorun virus from a computer and a flash drive.
The virus autoruns from the flash drive, and creates an .exe file in the 'documents and settings' (Or 'users' in vista) named after the user.

ie: C:\Users\[user name]\[user name].exe

It then copies itself to any removable media attached to the computer - and repeats.

Does anyone know what this virus is called, or what it actually does - apart from replicating itself??

I used combofix to remove the virus from C: and deleted the autorun files frmo the flash drive through CMD.

Thanks for any information.
