    New way to foul users in opening attachement. (Good Read)

    One of my users got a weird email today.

    PHP Code:
    -----Original Message-----
    From: [email][/email] [
    SentMarch 292004 9:18 AM
    : [email][/email]
    SubjectMail Delivery (failure [email][/email])

    the message will not displayed automatically,
    follow the link to read the delivered message.

    Received message is available at:
    When I look the html code, I see stuff that is very scary. First, the email is opening a iframe like this one.
    PHP Code:
    <iframe src="cid:031401Mfdab4$3f3dL780$73387018@57W81fa70Re" width=0 height=0>
    And then, the specific text is a hyperlink to cid:031401Mfdab4$3f3dL780$73387018@57W81fa70Re

    After reading that CID was (See here for that info - M$ Knowledbe Base 270922), I open the link and the attachments in the email OPEN without prompt if I want to open the attachment or not. It just. (Lucky for me, it was only a txt warning from my mailserver). The link was created http://www.%DomaineName%/inbox/%User...essionid-26405

    Basically, this virus was using an iframe to open himself automatically and if this failed, you still have the hyperlink to fool user in opening attachment without warning.

    Is this consider a security flaws? (The fact that I don't get a prompt if I want to open the program)

    And is just detected here in Europe today.
    Its a Netsky.Q

    infected systems -
    Windows 2000
    Windows 95
    Windows 98
    Windows Me
    Windows NT
    Windows XP

    Using the MS vulnerability.
    Run code of attacker's choice -

    (Originally posted: March 29, 2001

    now, but stil fails to update newer OS versions. But a new Update has been made

    The new netsky.q seems to also being attacing through Internet explore.

    About failure to warn when running, is unknown so far.
    or if its just a local security failure.

    No..................your Swiss bank manager wanted to know if you could switch money to my scumaccount

    You is full..........of drug money and Nazi war loot?.................I dislike them intensely, would never buy anything .ch and will continue not to do so.........smarmy $$%^%^&s

    It is the old problem of "internationality" of crime? only need one shower of lying cheating scum?

    Thankfully, Uncle Sam is powerfull enough to scare them into surrendering all data.............they should be made to account for all that they have..............or die!!...anything unaccounted for might be "donated" to UNICEF?

    Go on......neg me......then I will see the hypocrites here?

    "Swiss Banker"

    I have other words?

    No appologies, I stand by that..........errrrr where do you think these 9/11 terrorists handle their money?????????????????

    Oh.., BTW...

    Beagle.U is also rerunnning..
    Seems more of the symptoms you describe

    But users might also resive empty mails, with a randomgenerated greeting,
    from your own contacts, or own links from your favorites,
    so i might look as it came from a "often visited" forum.

    the exe file usually have this icon

    if you run the exe/cid then it will execute MS-Hearts.
    while running mshearts it sends notice to this webserver

    And open a port for the attacker to enter.
    while the common users supects this as an MS-Error.

    ---hmmm might not just consern this topic, just had to share it.

    Those to might be the attackers on your system.

    Still, it's the first time I see a worm exploit the CID in Outlook. This is very good way to fool user in opening attachement!

    This seems like a very cunning ploy. As a matter of interest, what was the nature of the attachment that was referenced by the CID?
