Snort - the de facto standard for intrusion detection/prevention

Snort - the de facto standard for intrusion detection/prevention

Lurene Grenier from our VRT team at Sourcefire does a great job of flushing this "Blackworm" Nymex virus thing down the toilet. Apparently this is the same worm that was released two years ago, and it still just as lame.

In case you haven't heard what I am talking about, all, I am talking about this worm right here (Click)

It's all over the news: Information Week Article and the analysis is running rampant.

I get an IM from my Director of Vulnerability Research, asking me if I can get a copy of the virus. To which, a 1/2 hour later I had a copy and emailed to him. Afterwards, he was working hard. Here is a VRT analysis.

Finally all the pcaps for the virus: Pcaps.

Enjoy.
