TECHNICAL DETAILS


Size of malware: 69,120 Bytes

Initial samples received on: Jan 26, 2004

Details:

Arrival and Installation

Upon execution, the malware drops a copy of itself in the Windows system directory using the following file name:

  • MSCONFIG32.EXE

Autostart Technique

It then adds the following entries so that it exectes everytime Windows restarts:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows
CurrentVersion\RunServices
Microsoft Config Loader = "msconfig32.exe"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows
CurrentVersion\Run
Microsoft Config Loader = "msconfig32.exe"

It also creates the following registry keys and adds values in them in order to register the its dropped file as a service that cannot be immediately terminated:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum
Root\LEGACY_OMG

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\OMG

After execution, the malware then deletes the original file from the directory where it has executed.

Network Propagation and Exploits

This worm takes advantage of the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) vulnerability present on Windows XP 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:

This worm 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:

This worm 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:

When it finds a vulnerable target machine, it copies and executes itself on the system.

It also searches for the following network shares:

  • ipc$
  • e$
  • d$
  • c$
  • admin$

If these folders have full access rights, it attempts to copy itself to these network shares. However, if these shared folders have restricted access rights, the worm attempts force its way into the system by logging in using the following user names and passwords:

Backdoor Capabilities

This malware has backdoor capabilities. It engages in port scanning activities in order to connect with the malware author. It also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) so that it can encrypt the packets that it sends to avoid detection.

It acts as an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) bot, enabling a malicious user to remotely access a target machine and do the following commands:

  • Change the server that the bot connects to
  • Reconnect to the server
  • Send a message to the IRC server
  • Quit the bot
  • Send a privmsg (private message)
  • Make the bot part of a channel
  • Let the bot perform a mode change
  • Make the bot join a channel
  • Print netinfo when host matches
  • Print netinfo when the bot is .edu
  • Let the bot perform an action
  • Disconnect the bot from IRC
  • Run a command on the system
  • Enable shares / enable dcom
  • Delete shares / disable dcom
  • Display the system information
  • Make the bot generate a new random nick
  • Open a file
  • Execute a .EXE file
  • Resolve IP/hostname by DNS
  • Harvest email addresses from the system
  • Terminates the bot
  • Add/Delete an autostart entry
  • Make the bot get AOL data
  • Make the bot get a list of cdkeys

  4. To check if the malware process has been terminated, close Task Manager, and then open it again.
  5. Close Task Manager.

*NOTE: On systems running Windows 95/98/ME, Windows Task Manager may not show certain processes. You may use a third party process viewer to terminate the malware process. Otherwise, continue with the next procedure, noting additional instructions.

Removing Autostart Entries from the Registry

Removing autostart entries from the registry prevents the malware from executing during startup.

To remove the malware autostart entries:

  1. Open Registry Editor. To do this, click Start>Run, type Regedit, then press Enter.
  2. In the left panel, double-click the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>
    Windows>CurrentVersion>Run
  3. In the right panel, locate and delete the entry: Microsoft Config
    Loader = "msconfig32.exe"
  4. In the left panel, double-click the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>
    Windows>CurrentVersion>RunServices
  5. In the right panel, locate and delete the entry: Microsoft Config
    Loader = "msconfig32.exe"
  6. Close Registry Editor.
NOTE: If you were not able to terminate the malware process from memory as described in the previous procedure, restart your system.
