Note: The method of infection used by Win32/Virut can damage some infected files beyond repair. In these cases, in order to return a machine to its pre-infected state, it may be necessary to install a clean backup of the operating system and associated applications.
Recovering from recurring infections on a network
The following additional steps may need to be taken to completely remove this threat from an infected network, and to stop infections from recurring from this and other similar types of network-spreading malware:
Ensure that an antivirus product is installed on ALL machines connected to the network that can access or host shares (see above for further detail).
Ensure that all available network shares are scanned with an up-to-date antivirus product.
Remove any unnecessary network shares or mapped drives.
Note: Additionally it may be necessary to temporarily change the permission on network shares to read-only until the disinfection process is complete.
