    Exclamation Heads Up**W32.Dumaru@mm(IRC Trojan Droper)

    Hi Guys

    Get more info on this (Currently) Cat 3 Worm and IRC Trojan from Symantec

    Another case of social engineering..

    Wild: Medium
    Damage: Low
    Distribution: Medium
    W32.Dumaru@mm is a mass-mailing worm that drops an IRC Trojan onto the infected machine. The worm gathers email addresses from certain file types and uses its own SMTP engine to email itself.

    The email has the following characteristics:

    From: "Microsoft" <security@microsoft.com>
    Subject: Use this patch immediately !
    Message:
    Dear friend , use this Internet Explorer patch now!
    There are dangerous virus in the Internet now!
    More than 500.000 already infected!
    Attachment: patch.exe

    This threat is written in the Microsoft C++ programming language and is compressed with UPX.

    Symantec Security Response has created a tool to remove W32.Dumaru@mm.
    Cheers

    Seems like alot of people are creating alot of worms for Irc. I hope those people who are infected learned a very important lesson. to be very careful on what programs they download and open up
    I have something to say: itīs better burn out, then to fade away.
