An update of the virus scanner Rising helps, by an infected file, to spread the Sality virus .
Rising, a free virus scanner should be uninstalled fastest, the current update discharged the Salty virus on the system.

Spread via a signature update...sounds like someone connected with their labs was involved. At least the vendor confirmed instead of denying. Now we will have to wait for them to investigate how this happened.
