Thread: Red Alert Bagel Worm

  1. #1
    Bagel worm spreads around world

    WW32/BAGLE@MM harvests addresses from local files and allows hackers to upload programs to infected PCs

    An internet worm that can enable hackers to take control of infected PCs is spreading around the world.
    The worm, W32/BAGLE@MM, also known as Bagle, harvests addresses from local .wab, .txt, .htm, and .html files.

    Antivirus company Sophos said it has received "many" reports of the worm, which sends itself to addresses taken from files on the hard disk.

    "The worm spoofs the 'from' field in emails it sends, which means it may appear to have come from someone you know," the company said in a statement.

    The worm includes a back door component that listens on TCP port 6777. This allows an attacker to upload and execute arbitrary programs on infected computers.

    It attempts to notify the virus author of its readiness to accept commands by contacting various websites and trying to activate a script that identifies the compromised computer.

    Users should delete any email containing the following:


    ================
    From: (address may be forged)

    Subject: Hi

    Body:

    Test =)

    (random characters)

    --

    Test, yep.

    Attachment: (random filename) 15,872 bytes

    example:

    frjujs.exe
    ===================


    Sophos said the worm will not activate on PCs with a system date of 28 January 2004 or later.

    Virus Characteristics:

    This is a mass-mailing worm with a remote access component. The worm arrives in an email message with the following characteristics:

    Subject: Hi
    Attachment: (random filename) 15,872 bytes

    example:

    frjujs.exe

    When the attachment is run, the virus executes the standard Windows calculator program CALC.EXE, while the virus copies itself to the WINDOWS SYSTEM directory (%SysDir%) as bbeagle.exe , and creates a registry key to load itself at system startup:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "d3dupdate.exe" = C:\WINNT\System32\bbeagle.exe

    Two additional keys are created:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Windows98 "frun"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Windows98 "uid"

    Mass-mailing Component
    The worm harvests addresses from the following files and mails itself to those recipients, using its own SMTP engine.
    .wab
    .txt
    .htm
    .html

    Remote Access Component
    The virus listens on TCP port 6777 for remote connections. It intends to notify the author of an infected system that is awaiting commands, by contacting various websites, calling a PHP script located on the remote sites. At the time of this writing the script in question does not exist on any of these sites.

    Type: Executable Trojan Mass Mailer
    Size: 15872
    Discovered: 18.01.2004
    Detected: 18.01.2004
    Spreading: High
    Damage: Medium
    In The Wild: Single report

    Symptoms:
    -presence of the bbeagle.exe file in %sysdir%
    -presence of the following registry keys:

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\d3dupdate.exe with value %sysdir%\bbeagle.exe
    HKCU\Software\Windows98\frun with value 1
    HKCU\Software\Windows98\uid with value a random generated number.


    Technical description:
    This is an Internet worm that is spreading trough e-mail.
    It arrives in the following format:

    Subject:
    Hi

    Body:
    Test =)
    %randomstring%

    Test, yep.

    Attachment:
    %randomstring%.exe

    where %randomstring% is a randomly generated string.

    When the user opens the attachment the worm copies itself in %sysdir% under the name bbeagle.exe and it adds the following registry keys:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\d3dupdate.exe with value:
    %sysdir%\bbeagle.exe
    and
    HKCU\Software\Windows98\frun with value 1
    HKCU\Software\Windows98\uid with value a random generated number.

    Note:
    %sysdir% represents the windows system directory (usually c:\windows\system).

    After this the worm executes calc.exe and it starts searching for e-mails in files with the following extensions:
    *.wab
    *.txt
    *.htm
    *.html

    After it gathers the e-mail addresses it tries to send itself to all the e-mail addresses it found.
    The worm starts a thread that listens for connections from a remote machine. This connection it is used for downloading a file and executing it. This is a possible auto update mechanism.
    Then it sends a notification message to a list of 36 web sites. The message contains information for about the infected computer. This information will be used for uploading other executable files to the infected computers.


    Removal instructions:
    Let BitDefender delete the infected files it finds

    yeah, i noticed that after visiting the site,
    but the thing is, i've had my pc on for a couple of days,
    and feckin norton didnt auto-update, had to manually run live update

    i mean, i dont mind goin and gettin the intelligent updater defs,
    (i usually do on regular basis),
    but if they put it in the live update section, feckin NAV should get em,
    think maybe i need to re-check my f/w, i did some tweakin on it,
    with "act as server" and "act as client" settings
    but i dont see this as a prob, cause i can still manually live update
    oh well, worth a try
