01/17/2004 Entry: "Hackers never sleep"

"A new Trojan horse is making the rounds, pretending to be a critical update to Windows XP from Microsoft. Instead, the new Trojan, known as Xombe, loads a back door which can be used to steal passwords or commandeer systems for use in a massive Denial Of Service attack. Xombe shares a number of characteristics with last year's Swen worm, but is not self-replicating. It shows up in an e-mail from "windowsupdate@microsoft.com" with the subject line "Windows XP Service Pack 1 -- Critical Update" -- and suggests that the attached file is a vital upgrade to Windows XP. The worm also urges users to diable anti-virus software before running the attached file, because it 'may interfere with the installation.'"

"Clearswift, a UK-based provider of software for managing and securing electronic communications, is predicting that 2004 will see a rise in malicious threats and the birth of the 'superworm.' The predictions are the result of the company’s analysis of 2003 incidents as well as what it claims is detection of a private peer-to-peer malware network. The company is advising IT-dependent organizations to review their email and Web security to ensure their PCs are not used to distribute viruses or execute criminal activities on behalf of malicious groups."

"To generate an additional level of security at the micro level, Advanced Micro Devices and Intel plan to release a new technology, that will equip processors to counter and stop security attacks right in their tracks."
