No, not it. Close but not exactly. I seem to be encountering a different
mutation of this Virus. First, the ports it is trying to connect
to are 25000-26000, second the timestamp in the URL seems to be missing in
the above description.

True is, that the infected file seems to be C:\csrss.exe. According to
McAfee Virus Scan (with the newest pattern file) this file was infected
with buchon.c. But the description does not fully match either. Anyways:
Killing the process and removing c:\csrss.exe helped. 

McAfee knows about this Virus since last week, but decided
it was not worth an update of their regular patterns. Thank you for this
policy of slow updates, I will see that I get a vendor that acts
in time, I guess.
