many people of my clan got this virus, too.
we don´t know where it comes from, but we assume that it loads from a filehoster if someone has a locator linked to this hoster.
Many of us host their skins on fileden and this site is now reported as attacking.

That´s just a guess.

Another possibilty: Someone linked with an underscore tag to an infected site and now the virus spreads over p2p in TM.
