    Re: Virus Alerts/Security Warnings/Solutions

    Quoted from the above report:


    Description:
    A vulnerability has been reported in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

    The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the handling of certain attributes in the <IFRAME> HTML tag. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a malicious HTML document containing overly long strings in the "SRC" and "NAME" attributes of the <IFRAME> tag.

    Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

    The vulnerability has been confirmed in the following versions:
    * Internet Explorer 6.0 on Windows XP SP1 (fully patched).
    * Internet Explorer 6.0 on Windows 2000 (fully patched).

    NOTE: This advisory has been rated "Extremely critical" as a working exploit has been published on public mailing lists.

    Solution:
    The vulnerability does not affect systems running Windows XP with SP2 installed.

    Use another product.

    Iím likely way behind times here but has anyone had problems with this parasite?

    MagicControl:

    Description
    MagicControl is a commercial trojan from dialler manufacturer Electronic Group (eGroup).

    It seems to contain code aimed at avoiding personal firewall software installed on the local machine.

    Variants
    MagicControl/MC: versions 1.0.1.0 to 1.0.1.4, stored in a folder called 'mc' in the Windows folder.

    MagicControl/Wintrim: versions 1.0.1.5 to 1.0.2.7; folder is now called 'wintrim'.

    MagicControl/Wincomp: version 1.0.2.8; folder is called 'wincomp'.

    MagicControl/Winmgts: version 1.0.2.9; folder is called 'winmgts'.

    Also known as
    The Wintrim variant is detected as Persis by F-Secure anti-virus. The Wintrim and Wincomp variants are detected as TROJ_WINTRIM.A by Trend anti-virus.

    Distribution
    Installed by IEAccess/EGDial and possibly other diallers/loaders from eGroup.

    What it does
    Advertising
    No

    Privacy violation
    Suspected. The software contacts its controlling servers at secure-firewall.com and nocreditcard.com and passes what seems to be a block of encrypted data, the contents of which are unknown.

    Security issues
    Yes. May silently download and execute arbitrary code from its controlling servers.

    Stability problems
    None known.

    I didn't even know I had this rascal before I got rid of Norton AV and Norton Personal Firewall and scanned with CA EZ-Armor 2005.
