Symantec upgrades Korgo.F worm threat level.

INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Anti-virus company Symantec has upgraded the threat warning on the Korgo.F worm that affects Microsoft applications.

The upgrade comes after a rash of reports on 2-3 June 2004. The company's security team said that although the threat was still 'well-contained' it had moved the threat level warning from a level two to a level three.

Computers using unpatched Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems are thought to be most at risk. The worm opens a back door to the Microsoft system through TCP ports 113 and 3067 that could lead to a loss of confidential data and corruption of security settings, reports Silicon.com.
