A new botnet is making the rounds. And guess who was the first to notify us.  Our very own Handler Patrick Nolan.  He even beat our primary informant, Juha-Matti.  Way to go Patrick.

This botnet client has been spread using the MS05-047 vulnerability, continues their entry.




McAfee has information at:


This is a heads up for some since botnet owners are using it to further exploit networks they already have a presence on. If you haven't already patched - you may want to do so now.

According to McAfee and F-Secure, they have amended that this botnet is exploiting MS05-039 instead of MS05-047.
