WScript.exe is Infected By Malware and Firefox Opens Harmful Websites

He double clicked a folder to open in his pen drive but it was a short cut created by a malware. The target location of the folder was the below address. C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start WScript d3d3\icec.js & Start Explorer.exe "RECYCLER" and I believe WScript.exe is infected by this malware.

Gladly Avast installed on my computer is able to detect it and stop Firefox from accessing the page.
