    As of May 1, 2004 4:15 AM (PST), TrendLabs has declared a Yellow alert to control the spread of this malware. Infection reports have been received from Europe, Asia and the US.

    This worm exploits the Windows LSASS vulnerability, which is a buffer overrun that allows remote code execution and enables an attacker to gain full control of the affected system.

    Apply patch if you did not update from Microsoft lately
