WORM_SDBOT Variant Spreading through MSN IM

Postby TeMerc » Thu Aug 09, 2007 9:04 am

August 9th, 2007

A new variant of WORM_SDBOT has just turned up. This variant, detected by Trend as WORM_SDBOT.EXT, has been observed to spread copies of itself via MSN’s instant messaging application.

As with any IM-borne malware, the worm sends an interesting message to an unsuspecting recipient to trick him/her into downloading it into the system. A copy of the worm is sent directly with the message itself, as a zip file.
