Does NOD32 detect Gumblar, adsttnmq1 attack and variants? If so when was the detection introduced?
We have added detection for Gumblar in update 4253.
Just make sure you scan after the update if you suspect infection
What about the other things the OP asked about?
good point. Are adsttnmq1 and gumblar the same, variations of the same or something completely different?
Someone in another forum came up with this:
excerpts from the above:
"it seems that the problem is not related to the specific software used by the site but to the hosting management platform used by the provider"
"It is not a DoS attack, the website is not the real target of the attack. The attacked website is just a tool to alter the relevance of words in the Web. The attacker’s interest is that the attacked website continues working without visible alterations."
Obviously different from gumblar and this explains why none of the PC-oriented AV products seem to be aware of it since PCs are not affected by it.
