New worm in wild! Morto targets port 3389

Unread postby Sludge3000 » August 29th, 2011, 1:58 am

It’s retro day in the world of Internet security, with an Internet worm dubbed “Morto” spreading via the Windows Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

F-Secure is reporting that the worm is behind a spike in traffic on Port 3389/TCP. Once it’s entered a network, the worm starts scanning for machines that have RDP enabled. Vulnerable machines get Morto copied to their local drives as a DLL, a.dll, which creates other files detailed in the F-Secure post.

UPDATE:
Analysis by MMPC lists files and registry entries created, processes killed and details of known C&C servers. NB: The first IP address listed should be .82 in the last octet.
