Bulletin (SB06-075)

Summary of Security Items from March 9 through March 15, 2006

Original release date: March 16, 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.

The US-CERT Cyber Security Bulletin provides a summary of new and updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, and malicious code that have recently been openly reported. Information in the Cyber Security Bulletin is a compilation of open source and US-CERT vulnerability information. As such, the Cyber Security Bulletin includes information published by sources outside of US-CERT and should not be considered the result of US-CERT analysis or as an official report of US-CERT. Although this information does reflect open source reports, it is not an official description and should be used for informational purposes only. The intention of the Cyber Security Bulletin is to serve as a comprehensive directory of pertinent vulnerability reports, providing brief summaries and additional sources for further investigation.

Vulnerabilities

The tables below summarize vulnerabilities that have been reported by various open source organizations or presented in newsgroups and on web sites. Items in bold designate updates that have been made to past entries. Entries are grouped by the operating system on which the reported software operates, and vulnerabilities which affect both Windows and Unix/ Linux Operating Systems are included in the Multiple Operating Systems table. Note, entries in each table are not necessarily vulnerabilities in that operating system, but vulnerabilities in software which operate on some version of that operating system.

Entries may contain additional US-CERT sponsored information, including Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) numbers, National Vulnerability Database (NVD) links, Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) values, Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) definitions, or links to US-CERT Vulnerability Notes. Metrics, values, and information included in the Cyber Security Bulletin which has been provided by other US-CERT sponsored programs, is prepared, managed, and contributed by those respective programs. CVSS values are managed and provided by the US-CERT/ NIST National Vulnerability Database. Links are also provided to patches and workarounds that have been provided by the product’s vendor.

The Risk levels are defined below:

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 base CVSS 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.

Note that scores provided prior to 11/9/2005 are approximated from only partially available CVSS metric data. Such scores are marked as "Approximated" within NVD. In particular, the following CVSS metrics are only partially available for these vulnerabilities and NVD assumes certain values based on an approximation algorithm: AccessComplexity, Authentication, ConfImpact of 'partial', IntegImpact of 'partial', AvailImpact of 'partial', and the impact biases.

Wireless Trends & Vulnerabilities
This section contains wireless vulnerabilities, articles, and malicious code that has been identified during the current reporting period.

  • hcidump Bluetooth L2CAP Remote Denial of Service: Debian has released an update for the Denial of Service vulnerability in the L2CAP (Logical Link Control and Adaptation Layer Protocol) layer.
  • Metro Wi-Fi Networks To Grow 8,400% By 2010: According to a report from ABI Research, by 2010 municipal Wi-Fi networks will cover 126,000 square miles (over 325,000 square km) worldwide. This is an increase from about 1,500 square miles in 2005 (3885 square kilometers). ABI says the growth of municipal Wi-Fi is being driven by several trends, including use of the wireless networks for public safety and increased efficiency.


General Trends
This section contains brief summaries and links to articles which discuss or present information pertinent to the cyber security community.
  • Virus names likely a lost cause: In early February, antivirus firms warned customers about a computer virus programmed to delete files on the third of each month, but almost every company called the program by a different name. While this episode highlighted the continuing issues for the average Internet user, the incident became the first success for an effort to create a single identifier among responders for common threats. While consumers may have wondered about which threat to be worried about, incident response teams and information-technology managers had a single name for the attack, CME-24. The designation comes from the Common Malware Enumeration (CME) Project, an initiative spearheaded by federal contractor MITRE Corp. The project does not intend to solve the naming problem for consumers, but to provide a neutral common identifier that incident responders can use.
  • Americans Want Banks To Spy On Their Accounts: According to a survey conducted by RSA Security, nine out of ten Americans want their banks to monitor their online accounts for signs of suspicious behavior. The poll also found that although consumers aren't seeing a rise in the number of phishing e-mails, they are increasingly wary of all electronic communiqués from their banks. According to telephone survey, 79 percent said that they were less likely to respond to e-mail from their bank because of worry over phishing scams; that's up nine points from 2004.
  • The Tracks We Leave Behind: Web searches are not very private. They leave behind footprints in server logs that record their activities. The logs show the IP address of a user's computer, the date and time a visitor clicked on a Web page, the user's PC operating system and browser, and the referring URL that brought them to a site. An IP address can, with a reasonable degree of accuracy, be used to identify a user's location, through a geolocation service or an Internet service provider. When compelled by law or sometimes merely at the request of legal authorities, ISPs will identify their subscribers.
  • Clever Phishers Dodge Spoofed Site Shutdowns: A new technique is being used by fraudsters in order to keep their spoofed Web sites up and running. According to RSA Security's Naftali Bennett, the senior vice president of its Cyota anti-fraud division, some phishers have started using a tactic called "smart site redirection" to stay a step ahead of the law.


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 folder.
2 Zafi-B Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
3 Lovgate.w Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
4 Mytob-GH Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
5 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.
6 Mytob-AS Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
7 Sober-Z Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
8 Mytob.C Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
9 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.
10 Mytob-BE Win32 Worm
Stable
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 antivirus, and modifying data.

Information in the Cyber Security Bulletin is a compilation of open source and US-CERT vulnerability information. As such, the Cyber Security Bulletin includes information published by sources outside of US-CERT and should not be considered the result of US-CERT analysis or as an official report of US-CERT. Although this information does reflect open source reports, it is not an official description and should be used for informational purposes only. The intention of the Cyber Security Bulletin is to serve as a comprehensive directory of pertinent vulnerability reports, providing brief summaries and additional sources for further investigation.

Vulnerabilities

The tables below summarize vulnerabilities that have been reported by various open source organizations or presented in newsgroups and on web sites. Items in bold designate updates that have been made to past entries. Entries are grouped by the operating system on which the reported software operates, and vulnerabilities which affect both Windows and Unix/ Linux Operating Systems are included in the Multiple Operating Systems table. Note, entries in each table are not necessarily vulnerabilities in that operating system, but vulnerabilities in software which operate on some version of that operating system.

Entries may contain additional US-CERT sponsored information, including Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) numbers, National Vulnerability Database (NVD) links, Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) values, Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) definitions, or links to US-CERT Vulnerability Notes. Metrics, values, and information included in the Cyber Security Bulletin which has been provided by other US-CERT sponsored programs, is prepared, managed, and contributed by those respective programs. CVSS values are managed and provided by the US-CERT/ NIST National Vulnerability Database. Links are also provided to patches and workarounds that have been provided by the product’s vendor.

The Risk levels are defined below:

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 base CVSS 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.

Note that scores provided prior to 11/9/2005 are approximated from only partially available CVSS metric data. Such scores are marked as "Approximated" within NVD. In particular, the following CVSS metrics are only partially available for these vulnerabilities and NVD assumes certain values based on an approximation algorithm: AccessComplexity, Authentication, ConfImpact of 'partial', IntegImpact of 'partial', AvailImpact of 'partial', and the impact biases.

Wireless Trends & Vulnerabilities
This section contains wireless vulnerabilities, articles, and malicious code that has been identified during the current reporting period.

  • hcidump Bluetooth L2CAP Remote Denial of Service: Debian has released an update for the Denial of Service vulnerability in the L2CAP (Logical Link Control and Adaptation Layer Protocol) layer.
  • Metro Wi-Fi Networks To Grow 8,400% By 2010: According to a report from ABI Research, by 2010 municipal Wi-Fi networks will cover 126,000 square miles (over 325,000 square km) worldwide. This is an increase from about 1,500 square miles in 2005 (3885 square kilometers). ABI says the growth of municipal Wi-Fi is being driven by several trends, including use of the wireless networks for public safety and increased efficiency.


General Trends
This section contains brief summaries and links to articles which discuss or present information pertinent to the cyber security community.
  • Virus names likely a lost cause: In early February, antivirus firms warned customers about a computer virus programmed to delete files on the third of each month, but almost every company called the program by a different name. While this episode highlighted the continuing issues for the average Internet user, the incident became the first success for an effort to create a single identifier among responders for common threats. While consumers may have wondered about which threat to be worried about, incident response teams and information-technology managers had a single name for the attack, CME-24. The designation comes from the Common Malware Enumeration (CME) Project, an initiative spearheaded by federal contractor MITRE Corp. The project does not intend to solve the naming problem for consumers, but to provide a neutral common identifier that incident responders can use.
  • Americans Want Banks To Spy On Their Accounts: According to a survey conducted by RSA Security, nine out of ten Americans want their banks to monitor their online accounts for signs of suspicious behavior. The poll also found that although consumers aren't seeing a rise in the number of phishing e-mails, they are increasingly wary of all electronic communiqués from their banks. According to telephone survey, 79 percent said that they were less likely to respond to e-mail from their bank because of worry over phishing scams; that's up nine points from 2004.
  • The Tracks We Leave Behind: Web searches are not very private. They leave behind footprints in server logs that record their activities. The logs show the IP address of a user's computer, the date and time a visitor clicked on a Web page, the user's PC operating system and browser, and the referring URL that brought them to a site. An IP address can, with a reasonable degree of accuracy, be used to identify a user's location, through a geolocation service or an Internet service provider. When compelled by law or sometimes merely at the request of legal authorities, ISPs will identify their subscribers.
  • Clever Phishers Dodge Spoofed Site Shutdowns: A new technique is being used by fraudsters in order to keep their spoofed Web sites up and running. According to RSA Security's Naftali Bennett, the senior vice president of its Cyota anti-fraud division, some phishers have started using a tactic called "smart site redirection" to stay a step ahead of the law.


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 folder.
2 Zafi-B Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
3 Lovgate.w Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
4 Mytob-GH Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
5 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.
6 Mytob-AS Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
7 Sober-Z Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
8 Mytob.C Win32 Worm
Stable
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.
9 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.
10 Mytob-BE Win32 Worm
Stable
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 antivirus, and modifying data.
