It would seem it was a variant of the i-worm/stration virus. To quote AVG's virus encyclopedia.
Various modifications of the worm try to download (via http) one or more files from the Internet. Server and file names are variable.
The Worm blocks some security software, for example various firewalls, antivirus programs and so on. It stops services belonging to that software, or redirects servers.
In the case of AVG (but also for many other antivirus applications), the worm disables the download of update files by modifying theHostsfile. It redirects the update server addresses in this file. (Explanation: The TCP/IP stack uses this file as its first choice when performing translation of IP addresses from the server's name. When the name is found in the file, the IP stack does not query the DNS servers).
Latest news is that new versions of the worm are using process injecting. This technology allows the worm to hide itself from firewalls. Usual victims are mainly Internet Explorer and other browsers.
Some versions of the worm can cause a crash of Explorer, or can disable the save command in notepad, or can disable usage ofRegeditor can download other malware from the Internet.
Update-KB.exe, upon running, will sometimes display a message about successful installation.
