one thing you have to realize chris is that evidently this is "NOT" a
self replicating piece of software, sure it destroys your system data
but it does not show any evidence of any wan support.
From the anylizing I have done on it so far, it just seeks out system data, maybe the google exe that darel got was lan aware but it doesn't seem this one is, I disagree with contacting the antivirus companies.

Well, a virus is a virus people, let's not kid ourselves here. If you suspect something on your computer that could cause damage to *anyone* blind, sighted, I don't care who you are or where in the world you live, if it's destructive and your antivirus software does not detect that it's bad, submit it! Then the antivirus vendors will see this and come up with a fix. I mean really, think of it like this. It's a horrible thought, but imagine that you get sent a virus that is aimed at blind computer users like this one, but the virus passes itself onto other people. It's not gonna care wether you're blind or not. it's not smart enough to know who is blind or sighted. So again, if it's not being detected by your particular antivirus software, plese for heavens sakes send it to them for analysis.

They'd put deffinitions into there databases to detect this nasty piece of crap!
