    a² News

    Dear nick,

    again, a new email worm was found and it spreads very fast!

    First analysis of Worm.Win32.Bagle:
    Bagle comes with an own SMTP engine to spread itself via email attachments. It searches in several files on the harddisk for email addresses which are used as the sender-addresses of the emails.

    The subject is always: Hi

    The message body starts with: Test =)

    The worm attachment may have several file names. Don't open and run attached files of emails you don't know!

    More information about the new worm can be found at the new a² Malware Database:
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Worm.Win32.Bagle

    Please run the online update in a² free or a² personal to be protected against Worm.Win32.Bagle.


    Sincerely yours

    Your a² Team

    a² News

    Dear nick,

    Worm.Win32.Sober.D Alert!
    After the many new NetSky and MyDoom variants of the last weeks, a new variant of the Sober Worm arrived. Worm.Win32.Sober.D - so it's official name - uses the publicity of the MyDoom Worm as well as the confusion about the many new worms at the users to spread.

    Sober.D masks itself as a warning email for the MyDoom Worm. In German speaking countries it sends itself in German language. In all other regions English is used.

    The email subject is:

    Microsoft Alarm: Bitte Lesen!
    or
    Microsoft Alert: Please Read!

    The english email body text is:

    New MyDoom Virus Variant Detected!

    A new variant of the W32.Mydoom (W32.Novarg) worm spread rapidly through the Internet.
    Anti-virus vendor Central Command claims that 1 in 45 e-mails contains the MyDoom virus.
    The worm also has a backdoor Trojan capability.
    By default, the Trojan component listens on port 13468.

    Protection:
    Please download this digitally signed attachment.
    This Update includes the functionality of previously released patches.

    The email contains an attachment like all other current worms which is the worm. If you open the attachments, the Worm is activated and begins to spread itself.

    If you run the worm, you will get the message:

    This patch has been successfully installed.
    or
    This patch does not need to be installed on this system.


    Sober.D can be detected and removed with a² with the latest signature updates loaded. The a² background guard blocks the worm immediately if it is started.

    A more detailed description of the worm can be found at the a² Malware Database:
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Worm.Win32.Sober.D


    Sincerley yours,

    Your a² Team
