It is the second day of BlackWorm

One month is a short period, it is the second day of hard coded Nyxem.E worm (CME-24) file deletion process today.

It’s interesting to see if there are reports about damages at all after the weekend. The effect of this worm was not so notable last time.

Especially damages via Windows network shares were not so wide. Damages via USB drives are another interesting subject as well. Reportedly BlackWorm can delete files on removable medias too.

If you are not familiar with this malware yet and it’s possible that you will get a surprised call of end user today take a look at this CME-24 (BlackWorm) Users’ FAQ entry.

Internet Storm Center has their BlackWorm Summary page at isc.sans.org/blackworm too.
It seems that they are linking to SecuriTeam Blogs ;-)
