Symantec Endpoint Rapid Release for FU Worm

NOTE: After a cursory view of the Symantec forums, it's come to my attention that it is NOT best practice to use Rapid Release, unless directed by Symantec or if you have this worm. I would compare this closely to M$ release of patches that are special in nature, and would normally only release these if the system exhibited specific symptoms related to said patch.

In other words, use at your own risk.
