Voyager Oracle Worm may soon replicate

There is more talk about enhancements to the “Voyager” Oracle worm, including the possibility that it could be made to self-propagate:,1895,1908751,00.asp


“"Depending on the payload, if one of these worms gets out, a business under attack can lose every database within 1 or 2 minutes. This is a very serious issue," he added.


Aaron Newman, chief technology officer at Application Security Inc., described the modified code as "more advanced" than the original proof-of-concept that included an apparent taunt aimed at Oracle Corp. CEO Larry Ellison.”


Donald Burleson has done an interesting analysis of the Voyager worm, and notes that Oracle MOSC has addresses the threat:


“While primitive, this worm could be enhanced to seek-out user and password information in tnsnames.ora and listener.ora files, making it a real threat.  MOSC has issued this warning about the Voyage worm, recommending immediate checks for all databases.”
