Hi there,

I would suggest you to get a few shortcut files and submit them to McAfee Labs and you will get an etraDAT for the cleaning.

To submit a file to McAfee check the following document:

Hello  llamamecomoquieras,

I have a solution your problem!

McAfee has published a document for this virus named ''VBS/Autorun.worm''

In fact, VBS/Autorun.worm has the ability to infect removable media devices. Infection starts either with manual execution of the infected file or by invoking the corresponding .LNK files that could cause automatic execution of the worm. After infection it may also download other malware or updates to itself directed by the C&C server.

Please follows this link for the instructions https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/24000/PD24761/en_US/...

Hello,

You need to create a user defined file / folder type rule under access protection policy.
