    Matrix.morpheuz.D

    Discovered on: April 30, 2003


    Matrix.morpheuz.D uses a random TCP port to connect to the IRC server of the hacker's choice. Major targets are backbone servers, with the objective of spreading through all ISPs below the backbone. Infection comes through any connection to an infected server. This virus has various forms, some of which allow the hacker to take control of system services and others capable of destroying or corrupting data.
    The virus utilizes a new technology called Variable Automated Coding, or VAC for short. The newly infected client machine randomly changes the virus' coding with each succesive infection. The unique virus is then sent to another machine, and so on and so forth. With this random style of creation, the virus may be completely harmless, but if the same machine tries to connect to an infected computer again, it might get a more potent, potentially unrecoverable strand.


    Type: Polymorphic / Stealth Armored Worm Virus
    Infection Length: 31,232 bytes
    Systems Affected: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Me,
    Systems Not Affected: Macintosh, OS/2, UNIX, Linux

    After reading it again I realized it's a bullshit virus.

    Forget I even asked, from the tech lingo it looks like a bullshitt scare tactic.

    I should slap myself now. <SLAP>

    Hi testg,

    NOD32 detects it as Win32/Kaitex.D backdoor.

    Thanks, :)

    So it is real? Hmm interesting, well I must say one up for ingenuity of it's writters. Too bad I've didn't come across a sample.
    I guess I deserve another slap on the cheek <slap>. Now both of my cheeks are red, if this continues I will have to move to buttocks. :D

    Thanks for response and protection.
    Cheers,
