Unfortunately, the exploit is based on a bug in Windows and it is not an actual virus. This exploit can crash the system by trying to access a non-existent file with a malformed path. I am sure Microsoft will fix this soon. As the issue is not caused by an infection or by an intrusion, there is not much a security program can do to stop this exploit.
