    Navarg/MyDooms

    Might want to update Grandma's machine.

    Must've gotten 100 of these things over the last day. JimZ has the link http://forums.amdmb.com/showthread.p...57#post2492157

    You've got to run it, with some you have to unzip and then run it. But we all know some who will do that.

    More on Mydoom deal....


    -------------------------------------------------------------------


    Security software experts were scrambling to decrypt the details of the malicious program and were arriving at different conclusions.

    Symantec (search), an antivirus company, said the worm appeared to contain a program that logs keystrokes on infected machines. It could collect username and passwords of unsuspecting users and distribute them to strangers.

    Network Associates (search) did not find the keylogging program.

    Symantec also found code that appeared to target The SCO Group Inc., which claims some of its intellectual property has ended up in the Linux operating system (search) and is threatening lawsuits. SCO's Web site, which has been targeted in the past, was available but sluggish late Monday. Other firms, however, could not confirm that aspect of the attack.

    The computer security firm Central Command confirmed 3,800 infections within 45 minutes of initial discovery.

    "This has all the characteristics of being the next big one," said Steven Sundermeier, Central Command's vice president of products and services.

    It appeared to first target large companies in the United States -- and their large address books -- but quickly spread internationally, said David Perry, global director of education at the antivirus software firm Trend Micro.

    WHILE WILD BIRDS apparently are dropping stone dead from the sky in Thailand from influenza, the MyDoom worm continues to wreak havoc in the PC world.
    According to Kaspersky Labs, the infection also known as Novarg, likely was written in Russia.

    The firm said that over a few hours the program infected around 300,000 computers worldwide. And, Kaspersky says, the sudden explosion of the worm means that the virus writers have prepared the attack carefully.

    It said that when the worm infected a critical mass of computers in the network, a command was sent to mail MyDoom out the same approach used by Sobig.F.

    The worm has a random falsified sender address, eight possible message headers, 18 possible attachment names and five possible extensions to attached files, said Kaspersky.

    It spreads not only by email but through the Kazaa network, said Kaspersky, and masquerades under different names such as winamp5 and icq2004-final.

    If the attachments are clicked on, the worm opens a Notebook window with random characters, makes two files in the Windows folder taskmon.exe and shimgapi.dll. These files enter the system registry auto run key.

    The worm then scans the disk for email addresses and mails copies of itself all over the place. It also installs a proxy server on the infected computer so that a machine can be used to spam or mass mail new versions, said Kaspersky.

    It also installs a backdoor letting the virus writer control PCs, remove or change data, and install third party programs.

    It also includes a module to organise a denial of service attack on the SCO web site, to be activated between the 1st and the 12th of February.
