"Classmates Info Center": Currently planning the 2009 Year Reunion

Detection rates are poor according to VirusTotal. ThreatExpert's report is right here. It installs a rootkit and does all sorts of nasty things. Avoid.

I am retarded and fell for this virus on my company server....oh man. Anyways, nothing is out there to remove it and i'm pretty worried. Any thoughts? Jerry

Perhaps boot into the recovery console or safe mode and manually remove the files listed in the ThreatExpert report. I've not had to disinfect this one, not sure what will work.
