Sorbot worm targets MYSQL.
Virus experts are warning computer users about a new variant of the
Forbot worm which targets MYSQL open-source database software on Windows
computers connected to the Internet. MYSQL is a popular alternative to
Microsoft's SQL Server database software and there are said to be
more than 5 million installations worldwide. Aside from spreading across
the Internet, the worm also attempts to create a zombie bot network
which would allow remote hackers to launch a distributed
denial-of-service attack from infected computers. The Forbot-DY worm
tries to spread to network shares with weak passwords and also by using
two Microsoft security vulnerabilities: The RPC-DCOM security exploit
(N4SO3-039) and the LSASS security exploit (MS04-01 1).
