Network Associates calls it W32/Dfcsvc.worm
Symantec call it W32.HLLW.Anig
Trend calls it WORM_ANIG.A
Apart from disinfecting, Tom Geairn makes a good point about ensuring you quickly block ICQ ports and TCP5190. The worm communications with its author (or others) via these ports.

NTBugtraq Editor's Note:
Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
