New Worm Installs Patches

A new worm takes a different twist by trying to repair systems infected by Blaster and patch the vulnerability it exploits, antivirus vendors said Monday.
The worm, called Nachi or MSBlast.D, tries to delete Blaster from some infected systems and install patches, according to Trend Micro. Last week's Blaster worm, also called MSBlast and Lovsan, infected hundreds of thousands of systems by exploiting a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) flaw in Microsoft Windows.

Nachi exploits the same flaw but can delete the MSBlast.exe file left by Blaster on machines running Windows 2000 and Windows XP and download Microsoft patches to fix the flaw, according to Trend Micro.

The company rated the new worm as a medium risk. Computer Associates ranked the worm as medium-on-watch, while Network Associates called it a medium risk.

"Some may call this a good virus, but it can cause all sorts of problems when patches are applied to a computer unbeknownst to the administrator of that computer," said Ken Dunham, malicious code intelligence manager at iDefense, said in an alert issued Monday.

yeah I heard about this earlier today

its a bit creppy, but rofl still pretty awesome.... I imagined people saying things like "wow that virus kicks ass!" or "hooray I've been infected!"

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

The only one that should feel guilty is Billy Gates, but he was too busy laughing on his way to the bank to be bothered...

MS released patches weeks ago. People were too lazy or ill informed to apply them.

I just got that virus on my PC at school.  Norton says it can't do anything about it, and my computer reboots itsself every 15 mins or so.  What do I do, download a patch from microsoft?  Anyone have a link?  I'm a little worried, I have 80 gigs of mp3s that I'd hate to lose on that machine :oogle: :blush: :ooo:

At this point, people who still have it deserve to be punished.

Seems like I remember reading an article somewhere that said the blaster patch worm was causing more trouble than the origional virus.
