A friend of mine noticed these ones today:

Code: Select all

[22:12:24] <censored-> ownage! htxxxxxtp://!.pif :D 
[22:12:28] <censored-> nice! htxxxxxxxxxxxxtp:// :P 
(without the xxxxx's)
[md5 of file (both identical): e43f7b7e202ab30f6744f6a13f9ce325]
At the time of writing, both sites are up and the virus (file) is not recognized by my f-secure antivirus. results:

Anyone seen these before? Or more interesting: is there some increased activity?
They look similar to what I've seen, but then again... all these things look similar anyway ;).

There could be plenty of other variant msgs/urls, he already left so I couldn't ask :P.

Like the earlier BROPIA variants, this memory-resident worm spreads copies of itself via MSN messenger.

This worm arrives as a Win32 .EXE file.
Upon execution, this non-encrypted, memory-resident worm drops another file which Trend Micro detects as WORM_RBOT.AOR.

The dropped file can have the filename WINIS.EXE.
Its attributes are set to hidden, system and read-only.
After dropping, WORM_BROPIA.S executes this file.

It drops a JPEG picture file in the root folder, which is usually C:\. It opens the image with Internet Explorer (IE).

It also sets the attributes of this dropped file to read-only, hidden and system to avoid easy detection. After dropping, it executes this file and terminates itself.

The worm propagates using MSN Messenger.
It sends its copy to all contacts found in the MSN Messenger.

It arrives via MSN Messenger with a message that contains the following details:



(message) can be any of the following:

• Huge Turd hahaah! :-P
• LOOK! :-O
• nice! :-P
• ownage! :D
• paris hilton got hacked!! :)
(link) can be any of the following:

• hxxxxp://!.pif
• hxxxxp://
• hxxxxp://
• hxxxxp://
• hxxxxp://
• hxxxxp://!.pif

The links point to the site where the worm can be downloaded.
