The infection appears to have gone unnoticed for an incredible amount of time, judging by the timestamp of its components, even though some of the files had been successfully detected and blocked by some antivirus products.

If you are running a computer network crucial to your business, you are advised to download and run the free removal tool provided by Bitdefender to remove any traces of infection. You can download the file from the Bitdefender Removal Tools repository, or, alternatively, from the Bitdefender Labs blog.
