An employee at my place of business has an extremly strange virus/trojan/worm. It hasn't been picked up by Mcafee Enterprise though.
It is shooting out arp broadcast requests at 60 packets a second!!!
This thing is also setting up a wireless ad-hoc network on his computer, and broadcasting it as hpsetup.
Any guesses as to what it is? possibly a removal?

hpsetup is the default name of the wireless connection used for HP jetdirect wireless printing. I'd look at the setup and see if what (if any) hp devices are involved in the equation.
