Shared folders display corrupted on all workstations

About an hour ago the  folder structure on all shares on the network appear corrupt on all workstations. On the server the files are fine. Looks almost virus like. Windows 2008 r2 domain controller.
Any thoughts?

Turns out it was the virus known as sexy.exe, porn.exe, secret.exe, password.exe etc. It changed the attributes of all of the files on all of the mapped drives to system and hidden. Then created an .exe of itself with the same name as each of the root folders. SOnicwall and MS security essentials didn't detect. Easy enough to fix though.

Most common thing other than improper shutdown ..
1. Busted/confused RAID1 on the server.
2. some other host accessing/mounted the disk(s)

Please elaborate on the configuration

At first I thought it was a controller or other failure. However, event logs were clean and it began to look more like a virus. Which it turned out to be.
