Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, the file you mention appears to be randomly named, so for obvious reasons it doesn't make sense to add it to the Startups Database. It is possible that the file is a new one and has a static name, but 99% of the time when you get no hits of it on Google it means it is a randomly named malicious file. This is a relatively recent trend to avoid detection and removal--and being put on such a database.
Please be advised that for submissions to the Startup Programs Database
we need certain data, so please review the How To Submit A Startup Entry
. Information about any startup, whether wanted or not is appreciated.
If the file was listed in Autoruns, it is essential for us to know the startup method (what registry entry it is under) and the file location (what folder it is in).
Symantec apparently calls this worm by another name (which is common for AV vendors and the source of much confusion) and a write up on it can be found here: W32.Looked.P
There is no mention there of this or a randomly named file but it fits the characteristics that you have described in that it infects executable files on a network. That could be because this is a variant of the same worm, i.e., it is in the same family but some file names and methods are changed (also very common). Or, more likely and in addition, the file was downloaded post infection--those are more commonly randomly named. See section 8 in the Technical Details
tab of the Symantec article.
So if the file is listed in Autoruns, please let us know and where. If it is not listed, it would not be considered a startup and thus would be outside the scope of this subforum. Boopme
's suggestion to have the file scanned at Virustotal
(or Jotti's) is a good one. It will usually give you the final word on if the file is malicious or not. There is the added advantage that scanned files are submitted to the top AV vendors so that their definitions can be updated (using methods other than file names).
If you would, post the results here, just as a point of interest.
