Bulletin (SB06-005)

Summary of Security Items from January 1 to January 4, 2006

Original release date: January 05, 2006

The US-CERT Cyber Security Bulletin provides a summary of new vulnerabilities that have been recorded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Vulnerability Database (NVD) in the past week. The NVD is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) / United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). For modified or updated entries, please visit the NVD, which contains historical vulnerability information.

The vulnerabilities are based on the CVE vulnerability naming standard and are organized according to severity, determined by the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) standard. The division of high, medium, and low severities correspond to the following scores:

  • High - Vulnerabilities will be labeled High severity if they have a CVSS base score of 7.0 - 10.0

  • Medium - Vulnerabilities will be labeled Medium severity if they have a CVSS base score of 4.0 - 6.9

  • Low - Vulnerabilities will be labeled Low severity if they have a CVSS base score of 0.0 - 3.9

Entries may include additional information provided by organizations and efforts sponsored by US-CERT. This information may include identifying information, values, definitions, and related links. Patch information is provided when available. Please note that some of the information in the bulletins is compiled from external, open source reports and is not a direct result of US-CERT analysis.

Information in the US-CERT Cyber Security Bulletin is a compilation and includes information published by outside sources, therefore the information should not be considered the result of US-CERT analysis. Software vulnerabilities are categorized in the appropriate section reflecting the operating system on which the vulnerability was reported; however, this does not mean that the vulnerability only affects the operating system reported since this information is obtained from open-source information.

This bulletin provides a summary of new or updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, viruses, and trojans. Updates to vulnerabilities that appeared in previous bulletins are listed in bold text. The text in the Risk column appears in red for vulnerabilities ranking High. The risks levels applied to vulnerabilities in the Cyber Security Bulletin are based on how the "system" may be impacted. The Recent Exploit/Technique table contains a "Workaround or Patch Available" column that indicates whether a workaround or patch has been published for the vulnerability which the script exploits.

Wireless

Vulnerabilities The table below summarizes vulnerabilities that have been identified, even if they are not being exploited. Complete details about patches or workarounds are available from the source of the information or from the URL provided in the section. CVE numbers are listed where applicable. Vulnerabilities that affect both Windows and Unix Operating Systems are included in the Multiple Operating Systems section.

Note: All the information included in the following tables has been discussed in newsgroups and on web sites.

The Risk levels defined below are based on how the system may be impacted:

Note: Even though a vulnerability may allow several malicious acts to be performed, only the highest level risk will be defined in the Risk column.

  • High - A high-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder to immediately gain privileged access (e.g., sysadmin or root) to the system or allow an intruder to execute code or alter arbitrary system files. An example of a high-risk vulnerability is one that allows an unauthorized user to send a sequence of instructions to a machine and the machine responds with a command prompt with administrator privileges.
  • Medium - A medium-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder immediate access to a system with less than privileged access. Such vulnerability will allow the intruder the opportunity to continue the attempt to gain privileged access. An example of medium-risk vulnerability is a server configuration error that allows an intruder to capture the password file.
  • Low - A low-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will provide information to an intruder that could lead to further compromise attempts or a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. It should be noted that while the DoS attack is deemed low from a threat potential, the frequency of this type of attack is very high. DoS attacks against mission-critical nodes are not included in this rating and any attack of this nature should instead be considered to be a "High" threat.

Trends
  • Exploit for Vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Metafile Handling: US-CERT is aware of active exploitation of a vulnerability in how Microsoft Windows handles Windows Metafiles (".wmf"). Several variations of the WMF exploit file have been released that attempt to avoid detection by anti-virus software and intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems. Source: http://www.us-cert.gov/current/.
  • Data security moves front and center in 2005: Financial data leaks left more than 50 million accounts containing credit card information and cases, confidential details at risk. Phishing attacks, targeted Trojan horses and Web-based exploits compromised millions of PCs to create centrally controlled networks known as bot nets. In 2005, the threats of worm epidemics largely subsided. Instead, attacks targeting vulnerabilities in client-side applications--such as Internet browsers and antivirus software--rose. Data on bot networks revealed that those centrally controlled networks of computers remained a large threat. And, attacks targeting the systems of specific people in government and industry have managed to sneak under the radar of security systems that have been honed to detect mass infections. Source: http://www.securityfocus.com/news/11366.
  • WMF Infected Site Examples: Websense Security Labs (TM) is actively tracking websites that attempt to infect machines without any end-user intervention by simply visiting a site. Currently there are two types of sites. The first are sites that have been setup by the attackers in order to infect users. In most cases these sites require a lure (such as an email or Instant Message) in order to attract users. These are mostly registered with fraudulent registration detail. The second are sites which have been compromised. Source: http://www.websensesecuritylabs.com/alerts/alert.php?AlertID=391
  • December IM Attacks Jump 826 Percent Over '04: According to IMlogic's Threat Center, December 2005 instant message exploits increased 825 percent over December 2004. According to the report, the year's last month saw 241 new threats; down from the 307 in November and the 294 in October. Combined, the three months showed a 13 percent increase in IM threats over the third quarter of 2005. Source: http://www.securitypipeline.com/news/175800842.
  • More than 450 Phishing Attacks Used SSL in 2005: The Netcraft Toolbar Community has identified more than 450 confirmed phishing URLs using "https" urls to present a secure connection using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This number is significant for several reasons. Anti-phishing education initiatives have often urged Internet users to look for the SSL "golden lock" as an indicator of a site's legitimacy. Although phishers have been using SSL in attacks for more than a year, the trend seems to have drawn relatively little notice from users and the technology press. Source:

Viruses/Trojans

Top Ten Virus Threats

A list of high threat viruses, as reported to various anti-virus vendors and virus incident reporting organizations, has been ranked and categorized in the table below. For the purposes of collecting and collating data, infections involving multiple systems at a single location are considered a single infection. It is therefore possible that a virus has infected hundreds of machines but has only been counted once. With the number of viruses that appear each month, it is possible that a new virus will become widely distributed before the next edition of this publication. To limit the possibility of infection, readers are reminded to update their anti-virus packages as soon as updates become available. The table lists the viruses by ranking (number of sites affected), common virus name, type of virus code (i.e., boot, file, macro, multi-partite, script), trends (based on number of infections reported since last week), and approximate date first found.

Rank
Common Name
Type of Code
Trend
Date
Description
1 Netsky-P Win32 Worm Stable March 2004 A mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to the email addresses it finds when scanning the hard drives and mapped drives. The worm also tries to spread through various file-sharing programs by copying itself into various shared folders.
2 Mytob-GH Win32 Worm Slight Increase November 2005 A variant of the mass-mailing worm that disables security related programs and allows other to access the infected system. This version sends itself to email addresses harvested from the system, forging the sender’s address.
3 Netsky-D Win32 Worm Stable March 2004 A simplified variant of the Netsky mass-mailing worm in that it does not contain many of the text strings that were present in NetSky.C and it does not copy itself to shared folders. Netsky.D spreads itself in e-mails as an executable attachment only.
4 Zafi-B Win32 Worm Increase June 2004 A mass-mailing worm that spreads via e-mail using several different languages, including English, Hungarian and Russian. When executed, the worm makes two copies of itself in the %System% directory with randomly generated file names.
5 Sober-Z Win32 Worm New December 2005 This worm travels as an email attachment, forging the senders address, harvesting addresses from infected machines, and using its own mail engine. It further download code from the internet, installs into the registry, and reduces overall system security.
6 Lovgate.w Win32 Worm Slight Increase April 2004 A mass-mailing worm that propagates via by using MAPI as a reply to messages, by using an internal SMTP, by dropping copies of itself on network shares, and through peer-to-peer networks. Attempts to access all machines in the local area network.
7 Mytob.C Win32 Worm Increase March 2004 A mass-mailing worm with IRC backdoor functionality which can also infect computers vulnerable to the Windows LSASS (MS04-011) exploit. The worm will attempt to harvest email addresses from the local hard disk by scanning files.
8 Zafi-D Win32 Worm Stable December 2004 A mass-mailing worm that sends itself to email addresses gathered from the infected computer. The worm may also attempt to lower security settings, terminate processes, and open a back door on the compromised computer.
9 Mytob-BE Win32 Worm Decrease June 2005 A slight variant of the mass-mailing worm that utilizes an IRC backdoor, LSASS vulnerability, and email to propagate. Harvesting addresses from the Windows address book, disabling anti virus, and modifying data.
10 Mytob-AS Win32 Worm Decrease June 2005 A slight variant of the mass-mailing worm that disables security related programs and processes, redirection various sites, and changing registry values. This version downloads code from the net and utilizes its own email engine.

Last updated

Information in the US-CERT Cyber Security Bulletin is a compilation and includes information published by outside sources, therefore the information should not be considered the result of US-CERT analysis. Software vulnerabilities are categorized in the appropriate section reflecting the operating system on which the vulnerability was reported; however, this does not mean that the vulnerability only affects the operating system reported since this information is obtained from open-source information.

This bulletin provides a summary of new or updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, viruses, and trojans. Updates to vulnerabilities that appeared in previous bulletins are listed in bold text. The text in the Risk column appears in red for vulnerabilities ranking High. The risks levels applied to vulnerabilities in the Cyber Security Bulletin are based on how the "system" may be impacted. The Recent Exploit/Technique table contains a "Workaround or Patch Available" column that indicates whether a workaround or patch has been published for the vulnerability which the script exploits.

Wireless

Vulnerabilities The table below summarizes vulnerabilities that have been identified, even if they are not being exploited. Complete details about patches or workarounds are available from the source of the information or from the URL provided in the section. CVE numbers are listed where applicable. Vulnerabilities that affect both Windows and Unix Operating Systems are included in the Multiple Operating Systems section.

Note: All the information included in the following tables has been discussed in newsgroups and on web sites.

The Risk levels defined below are based on how the system may be impacted:

Note: Even though a vulnerability may allow several malicious acts to be performed, only the highest level risk will be defined in the Risk column.

  • High - A high-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder to immediately gain privileged access (e.g., sysadmin or root) to the system or allow an intruder to execute code or alter arbitrary system files. An example of a high-risk vulnerability is one that allows an unauthorized user to send a sequence of instructions to a machine and the machine responds with a command prompt with administrator privileges.
  • Medium - A medium-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder immediate access to a system with less than privileged access. Such vulnerability will allow the intruder the opportunity to continue the attempt to gain privileged access. An example of medium-risk vulnerability is a server configuration error that allows an intruder to capture the password file.
  • Low - A low-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will provide information to an intruder that could lead to further compromise attempts or a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. It should be noted that while the DoS attack is deemed low from a threat potential, the frequency of this type of attack is very high. DoS attacks against mission-critical nodes are not included in this rating and any attack of this nature should instead be considered to be a "High" threat.

Trends
  • Exploit for Vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Metafile Handling: US-CERT is aware of active exploitation of a vulnerability in how Microsoft Windows handles Windows Metafiles (".wmf"). Several variations of the WMF exploit file have been released that attempt to avoid detection by anti-virus software and intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems. Source: http://www.us-cert.gov/current/.
  • Data security moves front and center in 2005: Financial data leaks left more than 50 million accounts containing credit card information and cases, confidential details at risk. Phishing attacks, targeted Trojan horses and Web-based exploits compromised millions of PCs to create centrally controlled networks known as bot nets. In 2005, the threats of worm epidemics largely subsided. Instead, attacks targeting vulnerabilities in client-side applications--such as Internet browsers and antivirus software--rose. Data on bot networks revealed that those centrally controlled networks of computers remained a large threat. And, attacks targeting the systems of specific people in government and industry have managed to sneak under the radar of security systems that have been honed to detect mass infections. Source: http://www.securityfocus.com/news/11366.
  • WMF Infected Site Examples: Websense Security Labs (TM) is actively tracking websites that attempt to infect machines without any end-user intervention by simply visiting a site. Currently there are two types of sites. The first are sites that have been setup by the attackers in order to infect users. In most cases these sites require a lure (such as an email or Instant Message) in order to attract users. These are mostly registered with fraudulent registration detail. The second are sites which have been compromised. Source: http://www.websensesecuritylabs.com/alerts/alert.php?AlertID=391
  • December IM Attacks Jump 826 Percent Over '04: According to IMlogic's Threat Center, December 2005 instant message exploits increased 825 percent over December 2004. According to the report, the year's last month saw 241 new threats; down from the 307 in November and the 294 in October. Combined, the three months showed a 13 percent increase in IM threats over the third quarter of 2005. Source: http://www.securitypipeline.com/news/175800842.
  • More than 450 Phishing Attacks Used SSL in 2005: The Netcraft Toolbar Community has identified more than 450 confirmed phishing URLs using "https" urls to present a secure connection using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This number is significant for several reasons. Anti-phishing education initiatives have often urged Internet users to look for the SSL "golden lock" as an indicator of a site's legitimacy. Although phishers have been using SSL in attacks for more than a year, the trend seems to have drawn relatively little notice from users and the technology press. Source:

Viruses/Trojans

Top Ten Virus Threats

A list of high threat viruses, as reported to various anti-virus vendors and virus incident reporting organizations, has been ranked and categorized in the table below. For the purposes of collecting and collating data, infections involving multiple systems at a single location are considered a single infection. It is therefore possible that a virus has infected hundreds of machines but has only been counted once. With the number of viruses that appear each month, it is possible that a new virus will become widely distributed before the next edition of this publication. To limit the possibility of infection, readers are reminded to update their anti-virus packages as soon as updates become available. The table lists the viruses by ranking (number of sites affected), common virus name, type of virus code (i.e., boot, file, macro, multi-partite, script), trends (based on number of infections reported since last week), and approximate date first found.

Rank
Common Name
Type of Code
Trend
Date
Description
1 Netsky-P Win32 Worm Stable March 2004 A mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to the email addresses it finds when scanning the hard drives and mapped drives. The worm also tries to spread through various file-sharing programs by copying itself into various shared folders.
2 Mytob-GH Win32 Worm Slight Increase November 2005 A variant of the mass-mailing worm that disables security related programs and allows other to access the infected system. This version sends itself to email addresses harvested from the system, forging the sender’s address.
3 Netsky-D Win32 Worm Stable March 2004 A simplified variant of the Netsky mass-mailing worm in that it does not contain many of the text strings that were present in NetSky.C and it does not copy itself to shared folders. Netsky.D spreads itself in e-mails as an executable attachment only.
4 Zafi-B Win32 Worm Increase June 2004 A mass-mailing worm that spreads via e-mail using several different languages, including English, Hungarian and Russian. When executed, the worm makes two copies of itself in the %System% directory with randomly generated file names.
5 Sober-Z Win32 Worm New December 2005 This worm travels as an email attachment, forging the senders address, harvesting addresses from infected machines, and using its own mail engine. It further download code from the internet, installs into the registry, and reduces overall system security.
6 Lovgate.w Win32 Worm Slight Increase April 2004 A mass-mailing worm that propagates via by using MAPI as a reply to messages, by using an internal SMTP, by dropping copies of itself on network shares, and through peer-to-peer networks. Attempts to access all machines in the local area network.
7 Mytob.C Win32 Worm Increase March 2004 A mass-mailing worm with IRC backdoor functionality which can also infect computers vulnerable to the Windows LSASS (MS04-011) exploit. The worm will attempt to harvest email addresses from the local hard disk by scanning files.
8 Zafi-D Win32 Worm Stable December 2004 A mass-mailing worm that sends itself to email addresses gathered from the infected computer. The worm may also attempt to lower security settings, terminate processes, and open a back door on the compromised computer.
9 Mytob-BE Win32 Worm Decrease June 2005 A slight variant of the mass-mailing worm that utilizes an IRC backdoor, LSASS vulnerability, and email to propagate. Harvesting addresses from the Windows address book, disabling anti virus, and modifying data.
10 Mytob-AS Win32 Worm Decrease June 2005 A slight variant of the mass-mailing worm that disables security related programs and processes, redirection various sites, and changing registry values. This version downloads code from the net and utilizes its own email engine.
