Beware of Kelihos-2?

I recently noticed some strangeness with the flash drives I use solely at my local library. It was fairly easy to research the reasons for the suddenly-appearing sony.exe file and the .lnk folders at the root level right there along with all the other portableapps folders and exec's, and I've notified them that it looks like their computers are likely infected with the second Kelihos exploit. Fortunately the only other computers they are used with are my Macs so I don't believe there's any serious consequences, but I wanted to at least mention it as a heads-up I guess. I searched the site and couldn't find any other references to it... so I'm hoping this might be of help. Here's some links -
