[q]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.

The variant also attempts to drop and execute a bot program, which tries to copy itself into network shared folders and has an antidebugging feature, Trend Micro said. The worm will not run on an infected system if the NtIce and SoftIce debugging applications are running.

In addition, the worm attempts to lower the volume on infected users' machines so they cannot hear audio security threat warnings, according to the antivirus company.

Trend Micro recommended that MSN Messenger users block file transfers to slow the worm's spread[/q]
