No, Thor. Wscript.exe is a Windows program to run a script file. As Mark Deardorff pointed out, this is not the offending file, but used by the worm to launch itself. When in doubt, upgrade your virus profiles (I did mine today and it included the worm in the definition file) and run it on your system to see if you have any offending viruses or worms.

I found a file "wscript.exe"  Is that related the worm?

Virus is called WScript.KakWorm. I updated my files this morning from
Symantec. It located this virus and quarantined it. From what I hear, it's
spreading pretty fast.
