Worm:VBS/AutoRun.B is a worm that spreads by copying itself to local hard drives, network drives, and removable drives. It has no other functionality.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
The worm contains four files:
The first file is the worm's Visual Basic Script file.
The autorun.inf file causes the __.vbs file to be executed when an infected drive is accessed with a computer that has autorun enabled on the drive in question.
The script copies all four files to the root of local hard drives, network drives, and removable drives not labeled A:\ or B:\. The four files are also copied under %windir%\system32.
The _.reg and _.bat files are detected as Trojan.Win32.Zapchast.ee.
If the script isn't being run from the %windir%\system32 location and therefore hasn't yet been installed, it executes the __.bat file.
The batch file (__.bat) installs the worm by creating the following registry entry to execute itself each time the computer is started:
The batch file can make the registry changes by adding the contents of __.reg in to the registry. If the __.bat file was executed by the registry entry, it then runs the script file.
The batch file also sets the file attributes for all four files to hidden, system, read-only and archive.
The worm also tries to alter this registry entry:
This alteration is an attempt to make hidden files invisible in Windows Explorer.
