More information for everyone.

Hi Jared,

I've received confirmation from Fortinet that this is a Trojan. According to
the virus researcher there, Patrick Nolan, this is a variant of a family of
Trojans named "QuickBatch", so named because it's a batch script compiled
using a demo version of Quickbatch compiler (a compiler program that turns
batch scripts into exe files).

Patrick confirms that this Trojan does delete files, though it does not
appear to format the drive. Its file deletion routine consists of
systematically deleting files not in use by Windows or any running
applications/services, in all folders and subfolders.
