Recommendations from McAfee - Barack Obama's Everlasting Blue Blackmail Virus

Does anyone know if McAfee have issued any formal advise in regards to Barack Obama's Everlasting Blue Blackmail Virus. 

I assume the AV services will be protected by self protection.

Re: Recommendations from McAfee - Barack Obama's Everlasting Blue Blackmail Virus

We always recommend that the self-protection features stays enabled. This will prevent the malware from being able to stop the AV processes. 16d202aac28076f3c4c1bec60f356f7b does have DAT/AmCore coverage in the latest release.
