    HIPS alert after attempting to install windows updates

      I recently started work at a new place, and at my workplace there is an automatic software update installer which has been bugging me to install updates. When I try to install the updates, the updates fail, and immediately afterwards there is a HIPS alert. In the activity log I see this:

       

      Event: McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention

      IP Address / User: NT Authority \ Local System

      Application: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services (svchost.exe)

      Message: Attack type: W32/Yunsip Infection

       

      Can anyone help me interpret this? Does this mean there is a Yunsip infection on my system, or is something from the company intranet or elsewhere trying to attack it?
