Virus Update: Netsky.K Reaches Campus
Posted: 09:48:54, Monday, Mar 8, 2004 Expiration: 18:00:00, Tuesday, Mar 9, 2004
As of mid-Monday (3/8), this was a low-level threat. DoIT will install the latest virus definition --and notify the campus to do likewise on the desktop --as soon as it becomes available.
W32.Netsky.K@mm is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to the email addresses it finds when scanning hard drives and mapped drives. The Subject, Body, and Attachment vary.
For details, see the following:
From Symantec, W32.Netsky.K@mm
From McAfee, Virus Profile: W32/Netsky.j@MM
