I have installed Mcafee antivirus 8.8 in my systems, the problem is that some system in my office have a virus which create short cut of every work,excel etc file. when we move file in usb it create shortcut of these files. The mcafee antiivurs 8.8 can not detect this virus, how can i remove this virus or any other program to remove this virus from my systems.
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:
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.
