Important information about current security risks.

Mytob (Zotob) Worm Alert!

The latest variants of the Mytob worm use a vulnerability in the Windows Plug&Play interface to infect Windows systems. a-squared detects the worm as Net-Worm.Win32.Mytob.cd, Mytob.cf, Mytob.ch and its automatically installed backdoor trojan as Backdoor.Win32.IRCBot.et. Online newspapers usually use the name Zotob-Worm.

The vulnerability mainly affects Windows 2000, but may be used to exploit Windows XP and 2003 Servers too, Microsoft says. Windows 98 and ME systems are not affected.

Once active, the worm downloads an IRC backdoor trojan from the internet which is used to remotely control the computer.

Protection:

Ensure, that you have already applied the Windows patch with the number KB899588 with your system. You can download the patch on the Microsoft website or use the automatic Windows-Update to install it automatically.

KB899588:

CURRENT THREAT W32/IRCbot.worm!MS05-039
High Risk
Virus Alert


What is it?
A fast-spreading Internet Relay Chat (IRC) bot worm affecting systems worldwide, W32/IRCbot.worm!MS05-039 exploits a recently announced Microsoft operating system vulnerability to spread and possibly help a remote hacker control an infected system.

You can be infected simply by going online. Once infected, your system may continually reboot.

What can I do?

Besides making sure you have the latest VirusScan® virus definition updates installed, always recommends installing operating system patches from Microsoft. Learn more here.
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...mspx?cid=16000

How do I know if I've been infected?


The virus copies itself to the Windows System directory (e.g. C:\Windows\System32\ on Windows XP) as WINTBP.EXE.

The file can be run automatically by exploiting the MS05-039 vulnerability or by a user directly executing the worm.

Should you find yourself infected then you can run the stinger tool which can be found here

SYM05-013
September 02, 2005
Local LiveUpdate server username / password information revealed by client
Discovery Date:
August 31, 2005 - Bugtraq posting (Vulnerability in Symantec Anti Virus Corporate Edition v9.x)

Revision History
None

Risk Impact
Medium

Remote Access Yes
Local Access Yes
Authentication Required Yes
Exploit publicly available No


Details
LiveUpdate server login name and password are written to a local log file in clear text. This happens when the LiveUpdate client checks for updates from the server. This is only an issue when a local LiveUpdate server is used with a login name and password.

The login name and password belong to the account configured by the LiveUpdate server administrator for accessing LiveUpdate packages. Symantec strongly recommends that this user account be unique for accessing LiveUpdate packages only, and have no other system access. The system administrator account should never be used for this purpose.

Note: As stated in the LiveUpdate download readme file: LiveUpdate version 2.7.x does not support the LiveUpdate Administration Utility, Version 1.5.x. If you are running a system as a Central LiveUpdate server please go to http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/files/lu/lu.html and download Version 1.5.4.15 update for the LiveUpdate Administration Utility.

Affected Products

Product Version Build Solution
LiveUpdate Client 2.7 34 LiveUpdate Client Update


Non-Affected Products

Product Version Build
LiveUpdate Client 2.5 All
LiveUpdate Client 2.6 All


Symantec Response
An update for the LiveUpdate 2.7 client has been released and can be downloaded from the following location:

http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/files/lu/lu.html

Symantec is not aware of any active attempts against or organizations impacted by this issue.

As a part of normal best practices, users should keep vendor-supplied patches for all application software and operating systems up-to-date. Symantec strongly recommends any affected customers update their product immediately to protect against these types of threats.

Credit
Symantec thanks Arthur Freyman, for notification of this issue and coordination of disclosure as it was resolved.
