DIT warns of new computer virus worm

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), working under the Department of Information Technology  (DIT)  has warned of a computer virus worm which  is very destructive in nature and is being activated  on every third day of the English Calendar month.   The worm called Nyxem,  a memory resident mass mailing and its variants, is spreading in the wild to attack Microsoft Windows systems. The worm propagates by sending an e-mail attachment to target users. It also spreads through network shares. Upon activation,  it replaces the content of user's files and reduces the size of all user data files to 1KB.  The worm has aliases such as W32.Blackmal.E@mm, W32/Kapser.A@mm, W32/MyWife.d@MM, Win32/Blackmal.F, WORM_GREW.A [Trend Micro], Win32/Blackmal.F [Computer Associates], Nyxem.e (F-secure)

 

How the worm works

 

When a user clicks on the attachment it gets executed and performs the following actions.

 

·         Drop and open a .ZIP archive with the same name in the Windows system folder to hide its functionality.

·         Copies itself to the system folder  with the filenames: scanregw.exe, Winzip.exe , Update.exe,movies.exe, Zipped Files.exe

·         Also copies itself to Windows folder with filenames: Rundll16.exe, WinZip_Tmp.exe

·         Create the registry entry to enable its automatic execution at every system startup

·         Hides files with both System and Read-only attributes

·         Deletes the files related to anti-virus applications

·         It attempts to spread to network shares with weak passwords

 

Nature of Subject and content of e-mail/attachments

 

·         The emails sent by the worm uses some obscene subject lines, message content and attachments as detailed  below.
