Forwarded from: "Jay D. Dyson" <jdysonat_private> -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Courtesy of Incidents List. - ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Sun, 30 Sep 2001 20:47:58 -0600 From: aleph1at_private To: incidentsat_private Subject: WARNING: Trojan Horse Disguised as Message from SecurityFocus and TrendMicro It has come to our attention that a message claiming to come from SecurityFocus' ARIS system and TrendMicro is being used to deliver what looks like a trojan horse to unsuspecting users. These messages do not come from us or TrendMicro, as a quick check of the headers will reveal. The messages come with an executable attachment named FIX_NIMDA.exe. Do *NOT* run this attachment. The name is similar to the one used by TrendMicro for their free Nimda removal tool (FIX_NIMDA.com). To say the least we haven't ever sent out any type of executable attachment claiming to be a fix to any worm or vulnerability. And we certainly don't end out email using the brain dead multipart/alternative MIME type. We are still trying to determine what the code does. At first flag it appears to include some type of zip file that when run creates a directory with the called FIX_NIMDA, with the files FIX_NIMDA.exe, readme.txt, SLIDE.DAT, and slide.exe. The readme.txt file is copy of the file distributed by TrendMicro with the their free Nimda disinfection tool. The FIX_NIMDA.exe file is not the same as TrendMicro's but it appears to attempt to deceive the user by printout out some output that makes it appear like it working as advertised. Bellow you can find a sample of the fake message being used to transmit this trojan. If you have receive a similar message we would like to hear from you. Common sense and best practices indicates that you should not execute any code that come via email unless you can authenticate the source of the message. Sadly, as previous worms make all to clear the will be always people that do not follow safe computing practices.
