Thankfully, my antivirus updates daily by default. I'm going to install the Microsoft patch thing and avoid using p2p software. :thumbup:

Looks like it spreads easily through using the auto-run command from USB sticks so alot of sites are saying to disable that function and to download the security patch from Microsoft - http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx
