Phatbot Worm Plagues SQL Server Ports

April 22, 2004

The SANS Institute reports a new strain of the Phatbot worm appears to be roaming the Internet, attacking SQL Server ports.

In their article, TechWeb News reports,  

"Phatbot, which first appeared on the Internet last month, is planted on a Windows system and controlled by attackers through peer-to-peer file-sharing technology. Once installed on vulnerable systems, the worm has the capability to change itself to avoid and shut down anti-virus software, steal Windows software license keys, lift user names and passwords, and kill other worms and viruses.

The new variant probes transmission control protocol (TCP) ports 2745, 1025, 3127, 6129, 5000, 80 and 1433, as well as Microsoft's NetBIOS, the SANS Institute said in its warning. The malware apparently tries "to break SQL Server ports as well as the other vulnerabilities already exploited."

SANS, a security research and education group, is attempting to capture an executable file for the Phatbot variant for further analysis."
