As Piru said, this is not a traditional virus, so anti-virus software is useless against it. Even if it did recognise it, all anti-virus software can do is clear your system after infection, nothing more. It would not prevent further attacks.

This is a worm attacking a vulnerability (read bug) as described on the Microsoft site (linked earlier in the thread). Unfortunately, it's unlikely that anyone will ever remove ALL such vulnerabilities from any operating system.

Using Linux provides better protection simply because it's less of a target for attack, not because it has fewer vulnerabilities.

Professional firewalls and/or dedicated hardware routers further reduce the likelihood of a successful attack, but no system is totally secure.

One upto-date hardware firewall or a linux/bsd box routing all traffic should be enough to stop 99% of the baddies.


Actually no, well-educated computer users should be enough to stop 99% of the baddies.

I have no idea how it got to me .. but it did.

I installed the patch from the ms site and everything seems to be fine now.

There's a tool here to check if your port is open for abuse.
AVG has been updated to include checking for the 'Lovsan' that exploits the flaw.

Every time I read threads like this I have a feeling of
peace and freedom. At home I surf the web with my
a1200 and a PC with Beos, so no viruses, dialers,
popups, attacks and no need for firewalls... just the
nicer side of the web, aahhh  :-P

Gawd, I`ve only just got back from sorting out a friends system that got infected with Bugbear.
 The silly moo had a firewall and anitvirus installed, but she hadn`t updated them since they were installed last November  :-o

 I`ve just checked my firewall logs, and in the last 12 hrs, 75% of attempted connections are for the RPC port 135...Times like this makes me glad that I refuse to upgrade from Win98... ;-)

And Microsoft want us to believe in their "Trustworthy Computing Initiative"...
 However many $$ they spent on those couple of months of bugfixing and security checking last year, it wasn`t enough..
On schedule, and suing

Seems to be a very common thing of late, you can directly test if your at risk with this by clicking
here  (port 135 on your comp will be probed)

This link will instantly and easily test anyone's Internet-connected PC. "Open" is BAD, "Closed" or "Stealth" is safe.
 
Lots of other security tests can be performed at the main Shields Up page which we all had fun time? on IRC doing last night :-)

Welcome to probe central ;-)

Seems to me that test isn't very reliable.
I probed my ports several times without changing any firewall settings, and still I got different results on some ports (some times closed, some times stealthed), but at least they didn't appear to be open  :-)
