Virus: autorun.inf and csrxx.exe (Worm:Win32/Hamweq.BW)

One computer got this virus the other day from a USB drive.

We got autorun.inf in the flash drive and c:\recycler\s-1-5-21-1482476501-1644491937-682003330-1013\csrxx.exe which are created by the virus.

More details about this virus could be read here: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?Name=Worm%3AWin32%2FHamweq.BW

We tried the Norton Antivirus with latest database, Symentec Endpoint Protection with latest database. Norton found the virus and tried to remove it, but it showed “Quarantine Failed”, “Clean failed”.

Then I tried Kapersky, it did the work.

30 day trial is fine.
