Latest Virus Threats, 14-6-04

Worm.Win32.Zafi.B Alert!
The new internet worm Zafi.B spreads very fast mainly via email attachments, but also via filesharing networks. The message subject and body text differs depending on the domain extension of the receiver's email address. Target email addresses are collected on the local computer and extracted from several files like temporary internet files and email addressbooks.

Infection
Once opened and installed, the worm sets an autorun entry at the system registry. If it is run, the worm spreads itself to all available email addresses. It also runs a module that attempts to flood some Hungarian websites.

The email text is available in many languages. The text advises the user to open the file attachment which seems to be a greating card. Here is an example of the English email:

Subject: You`ve got 1 VoiceMessage!
Body: Dear Customer!

You`ve got 1 VoiceMessage from voicemessage.com website!
Sender:
You can listen your Virtual VoiceMessage at the following link:
http://virt.voicemessage.com/index.listen.php2=35affv
or by clicking the attached link.

Send VoiceMessage! Try our new virtual VoiceMessage Empire!
Best regards: SNAF.Team (R).

Attachment: link.voicemessage.com.listen.index.php1Ab2c.pif

Zafi.B can be detected and removed with aČ with the latest signature updates loaded. The aČ background guard blocks the worm immediately if it is started.

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

Worm.Win32.Bagle.AF Alert!
A new Bagle variant is spreading. Bagle.AF arrives via email as an attachment like all previous Bagle variants do. The email sender is spoofed to make it difficult to trace it back. Once the file attachment is run, the worm installs a backdoor trojan on the computer to enable remote administration. It seems that the worm author plans to create a large spam server farm which can be used to send tons of emails within a very short time. The installed trojan opens the port 1234 to receive control commands.

Bagle.AF can be detected and removed with aČ using the latest signature updates. The aČ personal background guard blocks the worm immediately if it is started.

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

New Bagle Spreads Fast By Shutting Down Defenses

July 20, 2004
By Gregg Keizer, TechWeb News

The latest version of the mass-mailing worm aims to shut down a computer's anti-virus and firewall systems, leaving the machine open to further attacks.
By Gregg Keizer, TechWeb News

The latest Bagle three-worm wave includes one that's using a more aggressive twist on an old tactic, security firms said Tuesday.
Of the trio of Bagle variants that have hit the Internet since Saturday--that day's Bagle.ag, Sunday's Bagle.ah. and Monday's Bagle.ai--the worst is the also the most recent, said Patrick Hinojosa, chief technology officer at Panda Software. "When we saw it appear yesterday, it just sort of took off," Hinojosa said. As of midday Tuesday, it was the second-most prevalent worm on Panda's real-time list.

price.zip
price2.zip
price_new.zip
price_08.zip
08_price.zip
newprice.zip
new_price.zip
new__price.zip

Bagle.AL can be detected and removed with aČ using the latest signature updates. The aČ personal background guard blocks the worm immediately if it is started.

A more detailed description of the worm can be found at the aČ Malware Database:

Doomed. Again.
Another variant makes the rounds

Yet another MyDoom variant is making the rounds this morning, Symantec rating it a category three on their security scale. Posing under the guise of humorous photos, the worm propagates by sending e-mails with the subject line: "photos" and message body "!)))". "System administrators may also want to block access to domains [www richcolour com] and zenandjuice.com from their network for a while," notes one analyst to the Register. "This variant tries to download components from these addresses but the sites themselves have nothing to do with the virus group."
