It seems to proprogate itself any means possible, I am guessing the network in my case.  Probably started from an infected usb key or email. 

I have Trend Microsystems which was up to date on most computers, but it didn't seem to help much beond reporting.   I also ran the network checks before March 31 and my network came back clear. 

I first noticed it when my main domain server was so taxed it stopped doing anything.  This server is also my AV server so I am guessing that once it sent out it's latest update, all 200 of the computers connected to it reported back saying exsessive vireses detected. 

I had to go old school to get rid of it.   I dissconected all my switches and have been one by one checking and patching the computers with a usb disk (using kk.exe and the 3 ms patches).   I created a blog post on with links to the utilities I have been using.
