"MSN Messenger worm raised to medium threat The Bropia.F worm is spreading through Taiwan, Korea, China and the U.S.
News Story by Scarlet Pruitt
FEBRUARY 04, 2005 (IDG NEWS SERVICE) - Security experts have raised the warning level on a worm that spreads via Microsoft Corp.'s MSN Messenger, in an effort to slow its crawl through Taiwan, Korea, China and the U.S.
The Bropia.F worm, a variant of the Bropia.A worm detected last month, was raised to a medium-risk threat this week by antivirus firm Trend Micro Inc.
The worm propagates by sending a copy of itself under different file names -- including "bedroom-thongs.pif," "hot.pif" and "naked-drunk.pif" -- to all available or online contacts on an infected user's MSN Messenger list. It also sends and executes a file titled "sexy.jpg," which carries the image of a headless, plucked chicken sunbathing, replete with pronounced bikini tan lines."
