It just appeared on our radar 24 hours or less.
AFAIK, signature will get released any time from our AV labs as well.

It's also a polymorphic one (if I got this one right), that's why analysts performs more tests on this one.

Also, if one reads VirusTotal list, it can be seen that:
- two vendors name it Trojan.Win32.Kryptik.BCISU and second Trojan.Win32.Kryptik.CISU (good thing a letter differ between two different vendors)
- others name it Trojan/Generic or Malware Gen, which is usually another name for "we know is doing something bad but we don't really know what is"
- Symantec signed it with Suspicious.Cloud.5 which is documented from 2010, but the virus is first seen on 2014/08/14 (yesterday); I don't know what to think here
- Sophos name it AIJV[^] and also mention it as AviraTR/Agent.CISU.1 (CISU again !)

All in all, I'm not in an AV guy, but I know enough to read between the lines that this is
1. an 1-day item
2. drops on computer only if clicked and downloaded and executed (from Dropbox in the sample I have seen)
3. quite easy to detect and remove (registry key modification, relatively large size - 188 Kb)

* * *
That does not mean it is something the regular user can ignore.
But they do.
No matter how many times I tell my father
"if someone you don't know and looks suspicious pops up at the door, do you let him in? it's the same with programs; you don't know what is, you don't trust who did it or why pops, close it and never look back"
he keeps clicking on Yes on anything it moves.
I promised myself than one day I will do a MessageBox with something like
"Is your mom a very nasy slut?"
I bet that at least 75% of the users will click on yes.
