What is W32.Beagle.J@mm and how does it affect me?
W32.Beagle.J@mm is a mass-mailing worm that opens a backdoor on TCP port 2745 and uses its own SMTP engine to spread through email. In doing so, it sends the attacker the port on which the backdoor listens, as well as the IP address. It also attempts to spread through file-sharing networks, such as Kazaa and iMesh, by dropping itself into the folders that contain "shar" in their names.
An email potentially containing the worm has the following characteristics:
From: Spoofed to appear as though it is coming from the one of the following addresses at the recipient's domain:
Attachment: A randomly named .exe file, inside a .zip file, or an .pif file.
The zip file will be password-protected.
This worm is currently undergoing analysis. The record at Security Response will be updated as information becomes available.
