There isn't any official site warnings etc about it, it is only recent, and have sent the file myself to the main AV developers.
But through helping others in my area it has been easily found, it is always the "sounds like Joan Collins speaking" then I know yep... thats the one.
I got it myself via a site which shows rotating ads, just appeared, took a fair whack of Processing which in turn semi-halted the PC then ended up playing a 3 seconds snippet of sound of Joan Collins. I doubt the virus is harmful in terms of security or system stability, just a sneaky way for someone somehow to gain revenue from an ad.
But the one thing that did amaze me was the filename was constant on all PCs I looked at, because it looked like a random generated name so was expecting different filenames but in the same location.
So I deleted the file, checked the registry for a couple of entries pertaining to IE9 and its gone.
