In such case, make sure the OS is updated with the Latest Microsoft Security patches and Service Packs.

Hello,

Check this:

http://www.symantec.com/security_response/attacksignatures/detail.jsp?asid=23179

Patches for the correct OS architecture are found here:

http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/31874/solution

Defintiely do get those patches applied, and do ensure that IPS is functioning on all SEP clients.  Trying to protect against today's sophisticated threats with AV alone is like fighting with one hand tied behind your back.

Some other excellent advice from Security Response:

Please run Symantec Power Eraser (it will be integrated with SEP support tool)  with Scan for rootkits enabled.

Good Luck!
