NOD32 was updated for this virus on 1st August - and there have been 6 more updates since then.

All automatically with no intervention from me.

Your AV program should have done as well.

There has been a recent thread about this worm. Before everyone goes screaming to their computers, the worm itself is not dangerous as it does not have any damaging capabilities. It is merely annoying and will not damage your computer or trash your HD. Virtually all AVs reference files were updated as soon as it was spotted on or around August 1st and should have downloaded automatically,(AVG et al), or manually.
