Thoughts about Communists ethics

Question from a curious observer:

I have finished an introductory course on ethics. It made me wonder:

What kind of ethics do communists use?

From my studies of 20th century history (in AND out of school), communists ethics fall into utilitarianism, and into all the pitfalls of utilitarianism ("The ends justify the means").

I would like to hear comments from communists and anti-communists.
