Has anyone else seen a program with an Internet Explorer icon named dns.exe. I found it on one of my friends flash drives and it seems to spread via flash drives, creating an autorun.inf file to launch it, saves at C:\WINDOWS\system32\dns.exe, and runs iexplorer.exe for some reason?

Its easy to get rid of, I'm just wondering is this common?
Not sure if I should upload it or not too.

Sounds like a virus to me. Especially the autorun part.
