Technical Description:

This Visual Basic Script gets downloaded while surfing malicious websites (or even legitimate ones that were infected through various exploitation attacks). It is part of a complex infection mechanism involving many other components, that will download and install (mainly through browser-based vulnerabilities) various trojans to the unaware user's computer.
