Summary:

Worm. A program that is primarily replicating on networks or removable drives.

Payload

Behaviour Description
WormAutorun A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Worm's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
IRCBot A bot can communicate with command and control servers via IRC channel.
MSNWorm A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.
DNSBlocker A program can block designated DNS servers for making it difficult for users to locate specific domains or web sites on the Internet.
UDPFlooder This program can make a UDP flood. A UDP flood attack is a denial-of-service attack using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). It can be initiated by sending a large number of UDP packets to random ports on a remote host.
SYNFlooder This program can make a SYN flood. It is a form of denial-of-service attack in which an attacker sends a succession of SYN requests to a target's system in an attempt to consume enough server resources to make the system unresponsive to legitimate traffic.
Trojan-Proxy This program can launch a proxy server (SOCKS4) on a designated TCP port.
USBInfector A program can register a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification. So it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.

Propagation

A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Worm's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
A program can register a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification. So it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.
A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.


Remove it with Ad-Aware

  1. Click (here) to download and install Ad-Aware Free Antivirus.
  2. Update the definition files.
  3. Run a full scan of your computer.


Manual removal*

  1. Scan a system with an anti-rootkit tool.
  2. Terminate malicious process(es) (How to End a Process With the Task Manager):

    %original file name%.exe:572
    %original file name%.exe:1252
    wuauclt.exe:344

  3. Delete the original Worm file.
  4. Delete or disinfect the following files created/modified by the Worm:

    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.chk (100 bytes)
    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.log (3576 bytes)
    %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb (100 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\jusched.log (347 bytes)

  5. Find and delete all copies of the worm's file together with "autorun.inf" scripts on removable drives.
  6. Reboot the computer.

*Manual removal may cause unexpected system behaviour and should be performed at your own risk.
