Worm.Parite

Short Bio

Worm.Parite is a polymorphic file infector. It is capable of infecting all executable files on local and shared network drives.

Remediation

Any infected machine should be taken out of the network immediately. If possible, a backup of important, non-executable files should be made.

Malwarebytes can remove infected files, but it can not repair them. The infected system should be reformatted and any network drives it is connected to should be scanned else infected files can be copied to or used by other systems that have access to these drives.
