I actually stumbled upon this forum because of a thread talking about this nasty little bugger and how it's got a rootkit attached to it. In the situation with the current infected computer I have, I'm not immediately concerned about the problem, as we've already begun a wipe/reinstall on the machine. I work for a large school district though (30,000+ computers) and when things like this show up on even a single computer, it usually means others are soon to follow. I'd prefer if there was a better way to deal with this than a format/reinstall.

Any suggestions? I, myself am comfortable doing things by hand by many members of our tech team are not, so any removal utilities that are floating around out there would be helpful as well.

Thanks in advance! Nice place you got here!

The tools will be updating to counter this new nasty but for now it takes a trained expert to design a custom attack on the infection

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
