W32/HLLP.Phillis.bq - Early release of McAfee DAT file
Reader Alan alerted us of an early release notification by McAfee for a DAT originally scheduled for Monday. The new DAT was made available earliy due to its potential for spreading quickly. More information about this can be found at http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_140922.htm.

This good news is that a proper patch management routine and appropriately securing file shares will most likely prevent this virus from spreading to your system from another infected host.
