-- Update April 6, 2004 --
There are now over 700 variants of this trojan-turned worm. Multiple new variants are discovered each week. They vary in file size and name.
This detection is for worms that are based on the IRC-Sdbot trojan code. The source code for the IRC-Sdbot trojan was published on the Internet some time ago, and a number of worms are based on the same code. The following detections exist for such worms:
Due to their origins, such worms are often proactively detected as IRC-Sdbot with the 4258+ DAT files. Users are recommended to ensure the scanning of compressed files is enabled to maximise proactive detection.
These worms typically spread via network shares and create a remote access point for attackers to exploit. The description below is specific to one such worm, but the characterisitics are typical for many other variants. (Exact filename and Registry key names may change of course.)
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
