Bagle virus Returns


Google
  Web www.ugamedia.com

A new version of I-Worm.Bagle has been detected worldwide. The memory
resident worm spreads as an email attachment and leaves computers
vulnerable to remote control.

Bagle.b arrives in messages with subject lines reading 'ID' followed by
a random string of characters. The body also starts with 'ID' followed
by another random character string. The backdoor function of Bagle opens
port 8866 leaving machines open to further attacks. The danger lies in
the possibility of infected computers being used as platforms for spam
or DoS attacks.

The good news is that Bagle.b is scheduled to stop spreading on February
25, 2004. The bad news is that there's no telling what use will be made
of the network of victim machines the worm will leave for its creator.

Virus analysts at Kaspersky Labs remind users that it is always
dangerous to open emails from unknown sources. However, even emails from
familiar contacts should be opened with care. It's a good idea to use a
reliable anti-virus that blocks executable files arriving via email,
along with a firewall that monitors port activity. Useful links detailed
