Worm targets October Windows flaw


The first worm that successfully attacks an October vulnerability in Microsoft Windows was spotted in the wild Thursday, a pair of security organisations said. Both F-Secure and the SANS Institute's Internet Storm Center (ISC) said that the worm, dubbed Dasher.b, had been nabbed by the Honeypot Project, a German group that deploys exposed PCs to attract malicious code and capture samples. The worm exploits the MSDTC vulnerability disclosed by Microsoft in its October patch batch.
