There is the scoop on it!
Says to remove it with a virus scan!
If you do not have virus protection...
free one here:
avg anti-virus: http://www.majorgeeks.com/AVG_Free_Edition_d886.html

The report also says that you can use housecall which is here:
http://www.trendmicro.com

If you use trendmicro, I suggest that you first turn of system restore as these things try to hide in the protected files
