Sasser internet worm attacks unpatched PCs (English Version Only)

May 06, 2004

Description

W32.Sasser worm and variants is a worm that attempts to exploit the Microsoft Windows LSASS vulnerability MS04-011.

W32.Sasser worm variants discovered by antivirus vendor:

  • W32.Sasser.A worm
  • W32.Sasser.B worm
  • W32.Sasser.C worm (Updated on 4May 2003)
  • W32.Sasser.D worm (Updated on 4May 2003)

The worms spreads by scanning randomly-chosen IP addresses and attempts to connect to the vulnerable computer on TCP port 445. If it connects successfully, it sends a specially crafted packet to expliot this vulnerability.

Once the computer is attacked by the worm, the following message boxes may appear:

The worm uses this to open a remote shell, listening on TCP port 9996 (W32.Sasser.A - C worm) or 9995 (W32.Sasser.D worm). It connects to this port and uses the shell to create an ftp script called "cmd.ftp" on the system directory of infected computer. The script instructs the infected computer to download and execute a copy of the worm via FTP. The FTP server listens on TCP port 5554 on all infected computers with the purpose of serving out the worm for other computer that are being infected. Transactions through the FTP server are logged to 'C:\win.log'.
