Description: 

This memory-resident worm exploits certain vulnerabilities to propagate across networks. Like the earlier AGOBOT variants, it takes advantage of the following Windows vulnerabilities:

  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) vulnerability
  • IIS5/WEBDAV Buffer Overflow vulnerability
  • RPC Locator vulnerability

For more information about these Windows vulnerabilities, please refer to the following Microsoft Web pages:

It attempts to log on to systems using a predefined list of user names and passwords.

It also has backdoor capabilities and may execute malicious commands on the host machine. It terminates antivirus-related processes and dropped files by other malware. It also steals CD keys of certain game applications.

It only runs on Windows NT, 2000 and XP.

TECHNICAL DETAILS


Size of malware: 66,647 Bytes

Initial samples received on: Jan 26, 2004

Details:

Arrival and Installation

Upon execution, this worm drops a copy of itself as "DIRECTX32.EXE" in the %System32% folder.

(Note: The Windows system32 folder is usually C:\WINNT\System32 on Windows 2000, and C:\Windows\System32 on Windows XP.)

It then adds the following registry entries to enable its automatic execution at every system startup:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
CurrentVersion\Run
DirectX = "directx32.exe"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
CurrentVersion\RunServices
DirectX = "directx32.exe"

It also registers itself as a system service process by adding the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DirectX

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root
LEGACY_DIRECTX

It uses the service display name �DIRECTX�.

Network Propagation and Exploits

This worm takes advantage of the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) vulnerability present on Windows NT systems, which allows an attacker to gain full access and execute any code on a target machine, leaving it compromised.

Read more on this vulnerability from the following link:

It looks for vulnerable machines on the network by scanning for random TCP/IP addresses on port 135.

It further uses the RPC Locator vulnerability which affects Windows NT systems and searches for vulnerable Windows NT machines on the network by incrementally scanning TCP/IP addresses on port 445.

More information on this vulnerability is available from the following Microsoft page:

It also exploits the IIS5/WEBDAV buffer overrun exploit affecting Windows NT platforms, which enables arbitrary codes to execute on the server.

The following link offers more information from Microsoft about this vulnerability:

It also searches for the following network shares:

  • c$
  • d$
  • admin$
  • ipc$
  • print$

If these network shares have full access rights, the worm attempts to drop and execute a copy of itself. If these shares have restricted access, it forces to login to the system using the following user name and passwords:

  • Admin
  • student
  • teacher
  • database
  • mysql
  • OWNER
