    Question What is this thing?

    Today, while browsing around AO and looking at the hack attempts log, i saw this:

    Activity: Qaz_Command
    Source IP: 63.108.181.201 Source Port: 80
    Destination IP: 211.100.0.34 Destination Port: 7597
    Date & Time Code: 20011207190012

    What the hell is a Qaz_Command? I have never seen an attempt of this kind made against AO. I'm just curious, as I have pretty much figured out what the other attempts have been, and have never seen this thing before...

    I found this on F-Secure's site...it's on other places too:

    (snip)
    This is network worm with backdoor capabilities, which spreads itself under Win32 systems. The worm was reported in-the-wild in July-August, 2000. The worm itself is Win32 executable file and about 120K long, written in MS Visual C++.

    When an infected file is executed, the worm registers itself in Windows registry in auto-start section:


    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    startIE = "filename qazwsx.hsq"

    where "filename" is the name of worm's file (usually this is "Notepad.exe", see below). As a result, the worm will be activated each time Windows starts up.
