Good Morning Fellow List Members,
I am sending the following to all of the members of to ALL the lists that I
administer (sorry for any duplications).
AGAIN, this is NOT meant to start a discussion on this list, BUT rather to
INFORM you about another of the viruses that is making its rounds.
Please read this CAREFULLY so that, should you receive an attachment with
this virus from anybody (even your mother, father, brother, sister, etc.),
you will recognize it and not be fooled into opening it. It is a bit
technical, but very important that you understand how this works and what to
do if you find that your computer is infected.
START READING HERE:
"W32/Sircam" is malicious code that spreads through email and potentially
through unprotected network shares. Once the malicious code has been
executed on a system, it may reveal or delete sensitive information.
As of 10:00EST(GMT-4) Jul 25, 2001 the CERT/CC has received reports of
W32/Sircam from over 300 individual sites.
W32/Sircam can infect a machine in one of two ways:
* When executed by opening an email attachment containing the malicious code
* By copying itself into unprotected network shares
Propagation Via Email
The virus can appear in an email message written in either English or
Spanish with a seemingly random subject line. All known versions of
W32/Sircam use the following format in the body of the message:
English Hi! How are you? [middle line] See you later. Thanks
Spanish Hola como estas ? [middle line] Nos vemos pronto, gracias.
Where [middle line] is one of the following:
English I send you this file in order to have your advice I hope you like
the file that I sendo you I hope you can help me with this file that I send
This is the file with the information you ask for
Spanish Te mando este archivo para que me des tu punto de vista Espero te
guste este archivo que te mando Espero me puedas ayudar con el archivo que
te mando Este es el archivo con la informacion que me pediste
Users who receive copies of the malicious code through electronic mail might
recognize the sender. We encourage users to avoid opening attachments
received through electronic mail, regardless of the sender's name, without
prior knowledge of the origin of the file or a valid digital signature.
The email message will contain an attachment whose name matches the subject
line and has a double file extension (e.g. subject.ZIP.BAT or
subject.DOC.EXE). The CERT/CC has confirmed reports that the first extension
may be .DOC, .XLS, or .ZIP. Anti-virus vendors have referred to additional
extensions, including .GIF, .JPG, .JPEG, .MPEG, .MOV, .MPG, .PDF, .PNG, and
.PS. The second extension will be .EXE, .COM, .BAT, .PIF, or .LNK. The
attached file contains both the malicious code and the contents of a file
copied from an infected system.
When the attachment is opened, the copied file is extracted to both the
%TEMP% folder (usually C:\WINDOWS\TEMP) and the Recycled folder on the
affected system. The original file is then opened using the appropriate
default viewer while the infection process continues in the background.
It is possible for the recipient to be tricked into opening this malicious
attachment since the file will appear without the .EXE, .BAT, .COM, .LNK, or
.PIF extensions if the "Hide file extensions for known file types" is
enabled in Windows. See IN-2000-07 for additional information on the
exploitation of hidden file extensions.
W32/Sircam includes its own SMTP client capabilities, which it uses to
propagate via email. It determines its recipient list by recursively
searching for email addresses contained in all *.wab (Windows Address Book)
files in the %SYSTEM% folder. Additionally, it searches the folders referred
for files containing email addresses. All addresses found are stored in
SC??.DLL or S??.DLL files hidden in the %SYSTEM% folder.
W32/Sircam first attempts to send messages using the default email settings
for the current user. If the default settings are not present, it appears to
use one of the following SMTP relays:
* NetBIOS name for 'MAIL'
* mail.<defaultdomain> (e.g., mail.example.org)
Propagation Via Network Shares
In addition to email-based propagation, analysis by anti-virus vendors
suggests that W32/Sircam can spread through unprotected network shares.
Unlike the email propagation method, which requires a user to open an
attachment to infect the machine, propagation of W32/Sircam via network
shares requires no human intervention.
If W32/Sircam detects Windows networking shares with write access, it
1. copies itself to \\[share]\Recycled\SirC32.EXE
2. appends "@ win\Recycled\SirC32.exe" to AUTOEXEC.BAT
If the share contains a Windows folder, it also
3. copies \\[share]\Windows\rundll32.exe to \\[share]\Windows\run32.exe
4. copies itself to \\[share]\Windows\rundll32.exe
5. when virus is executed from rundll32.exe, it calls run32.exe
1. When installed on a victim machine, W32/Sircam installs a copy of itself
in two hidden files:
+ %SYSTEM%\SCam32.exe + Recycled\SirC32.exe
Installing in Recycled may hide it from anti-virus software since some do
not check this folder by default. Based on external analyses, there is also
a probability that W32/Sircam will copy itself to the %SYSTEM% folder as
ScMx32.exe. In that case, another copy is created in the folder referred to
er\Shell Folders\Startup (the current user's personal startup folder). The
copy created in that location is named Microsoft Internet Office.exe. When
the affected user next logs in, this copy of W32/Sircam will be started
2. The registry entry
rvices\Driver32 is set to %SYSTEM%\SCam32.exe so that W32/Sircam will run
automatically at system startup.
3. The registry entry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command is set to
"C:\Recycled\SirC32.exe" "%1" %*", causing W32/Sircam to execute whenever
another executable is run.
4. A new registry entry, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SirCam, is created to
store data required by W32/Sircam during execution.
5. W32/Sircam searches for filenames with .DOC, .XLS, .ZIP extensions in the
folders referred to by
While the personal folder may vary with configuration, it is often set to
\My Documents or \Windows\Profiles\%username%\Personal. A list of these
files is stored in %SYSTEM%\scd.dll.
6. W32/Sircam attaches its own binary to selected files it finds and stores
the combined file in the Recycled folder.
W32/Sircam can have a direct impact on both the computer which was infected
as well as those with which it communicates over email.
* Breaches of confidentiality: The malicious code will at a minimum search
through select folders and mail potentially sensitive files. This form of
attack is extremely serious since it is one from which it is impossible to
recover. Once a file has been publicly distributed, any potentially
sensitive information in it cannot be retracted.
* Limit Availibility (Denial of Service)
+ Fill entire hard drive: Based on external analyses, on any given day,
there is a probability that it will create a file named
C:\Recycled\sircam.sys which consumes all free space on the C: drive. A full
disk will prevent users from saving files to that drive, and in certain
configurations impede system-level tasks (e.g., swapping, printing).
+ Propagation via mass emailing: W32/Sircam will attempt to propagate by
sending itself through email to addresses obtained as described above. This
propagation can lead to congestion in mail servers that may prevent them
from functioning as expected. NOTE: Since W32/Sircam uses native SMTP
routines connecting to pre-defined mail servers, propagation is independent
of the mail client software used.
* Loss of Integrity: Published reports indicate that on October 16 there is
a reasonable probability that W32/Sircam will attempt to recursively delete
all files from the drive on which Windows is installed (typically C:).
Run and Maintain an Anti-Virus Product
It is important for users to update their anti-virus software. Most
anti-virus software vendors have released updated information, tools, or
virus databases to help detect and partially recover from this malicious
code. A list of vendor-specific anti-virus information can be found in
Many anti-virus packages support automatic updates of virus definitions. We
recommend using these automatic updates when available.
Exercise Caution When Opening Attachments
Exercise caution when receiving email with attachments. Users should never
open attachments from an untrusted origin, or ones that appear suspicious in
any way. Finally, cryptographic checksums should also be used to validate
the integrity of the file.
The effects of this class of malicious code are activated only when the file
in question is executed. Social engineering is typically employed to trick a
recipient into executing the malicious file. The best advice with regard to
malicious files is to avoid executing them in the first place. The following
tech tip offers suggestions as to how to avoid them:
Protecting yourself from Email-borne Viruses and Other Malicious Code During
Y2K and Beyond
Filter the Email or use a Firewall
Sites can use email filtering techniques to delete messages containing
subject lines known to contain the malicious code, or they can filter all
Likewise, a firewall or border router can be used to stop the W32/Sircam
outbound SMTP connections to mail servers outside of the local network. This
filtering strategy will prevent further propagation of the worm from a
particular host when the local mail configuration is not used.

Good Evening List Members,
First of all - PLEASE DO NOT start a discussion regarding this ON the LIST.
If you have a concern regarding viruses, please contact me directly.
I just wanted to advise all of you to be very cautious regarding opening
attachments you might receive. DO NOT OPEN THEM unless you are absolutely
sure they are harmless.
Messages might come to you which appear to be coming through Rootsweb lists.
THEY ARE NOT coming from or through the lists. That is impossible.
I also STRONGLY recommend that you all subscribe to the VIRUS-DISCUSSION
list so that you can keep informed regarding viruses which are circulating
on the internet, and in the event that you should get a virus, there are
members of that list who can help you resolve the problem.
You can join the list by sending a message with the word SUBSCRIBE in the
subject line to:
VIRUS-DISCUSSION-L-request(a)rootsweb.com (for mail mode)
VIRUS-DISCUSSION-D-request(a)rootsweb.com (for digest mode)
With the rash of viruses that are happening of late, I would suggest that
you subscribe in "mail mode" since you will receive the messages
immediately, without waiting for the digest to arrive.
****IT IS VERY IMPORTANT**** that you keep your anti virus software up to
date. Personally, I check for updates at least three times a day. During
virus alerts, I check even more often than that.
Remember that your anti-virus software will only protect you against viruses
for which you have downloaded the latest patches.
Again, this is not open for discussion ON THIS LIST.
Thanks for your cooperation and please be vigilant. DON'T open attachments
unless you know who they are coming from (I always write to the person to
ask if the really did intend to send me an attachment).
******YOU SHOULD ALSO TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE FOLLOWING******
Especially if you have Windows NT or Windows.
If you are using Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me, there is NO ACTION
that you need to take in response to this particular alert.
The following is a Security Bulletin from the Microsoft Product Security
The Microsoft Security Response Center, along with other organizations
listed below, is jointly publishing this alert that ALL IIS ADMINISTRATORS
ARE ASKED TO READ
A Very Real and Present Threat to the Internet: July 31 Deadline For Action
The Code Red Worm and mutations of the worm pose a continued and serious
threat to Internet users. Immediate action is required to combat this
threat. Users who have deployed software that is vulnerable to the worm
(Microsoft IIS Versions 4.0 and 5.0) must install, if they have not done so
already, a vital security patch.
How Big Is The Problem?
On July 19, the Code Red worm infected more than 250,000 systems in just 9
hours. The worm scans the Internet, identifies vulnerable systems, and
infects these systems by installing itself. Each newly installed worm joins
all the others causing the rate of scanning to grow rapidly. This
uncontrolled growth in scanning directly decreases the speed of the Internet
and can cause sporadic but widespread outages among all types of systems.
Code Red is likely to start spreading again on July 31st, 2001 8:00 PM EDT
and has mutated so that it may be even more dangerous. This spread has the
potential to disrupt business and personal use of the Internet for
applications such as electronic commerce, email and entertainment.
Who Must Act?
Every organization or person who has Windows NT or Windows 2000 systems AND
the IIS web server software may be vulnerable. IIS is installed
automatically for many applications. If you are not certain, follow the
instructions attached to determine whether you are running IIS 4.0 or 5.0.
If you are using Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me, there is no action
that you need to take in response to this alert.
What To Do If You Are Vulnerable?
a. To rid your machine of the current worm, reboot your computer. b. To
protect your system from re-infection: Install Microsoft's patch for the
Code Red vulnerability problem:
- - Windows NT version 4.0:
- - Windows 2000 Professional, Server and Advanced Server:
Step-by-step instructions for these actions are posted at
Microsoft's description of the patch and its installation, and the
vulnerability it addresses is posted at:
Because of the importance of this threat, this alert is being made jointly

First, I want to say I am sorry for sending out a email in one group message,
but I wasnt going to type this 30 times.
Dear list manager,
Please remove me from your list for now. It seems that there is a nasty
person going through the mailing list and sending out some kind of virus. I
have been getting all kinds of email from strangers telling me to "take a
look at this file and give me your advice". It requires you to download it.
I have not been doing so. I have been deleting the email instead of
downloading. Some how, this person(s) has been able to get a hold of my
email list form my computer and has been sending the same emails to my family
and friends. Some of them with private emails (from work) that are not
searchable on the net. Here is a copy of a note I sent to AOL in this
problem (it also shows some of the emails I was sent and so were my family
Hello, I don't know what to do. I am getting email like this from a number
of different email address'. To make things worse, this person has ,
somehow, been able to send the same mail to email address' on my buddy list.
How is that possible? Some of the email address' I have on my buddy list are
through private organizations (work) and not available to the internet
public. But these person's are getting them. How do I fix this problem?
Here are a few for you to look at that are being sent to me:

Subscribers are reminded that virus alerts are strictly OFF TOPIC for this
list. The sole exception is if *YOU* are *CONFIRMED* to be infected you may
send a short message to the list warning of that.
If a subscriber informs the list of a *CONFIRMED* infection, then from that
point on all correspondence should be PRIVATE, that is, should be sent to
the infected address or to the list admin (me).
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should a reply concerning a virus warning be sent to
the list. Period.
All subscribers are strongly urged to keep their anti-virus protection, both
the program version and the data files, as up to date as possible. Any of
the major vendors will do fine if kept current. My Norton Anti-virus from
Symantec **IS** detecting and cleaning the "SirCam virus" currently making
the rounds, for example. I would expect that a current copy of McAfee, or
www.grisoft.com, are working as well.
Please direct further correspondence to me (or, as mentioned, the infected
address -- but that subscriber is probably busy enough). I can be
contacted at Quest(a)springnet1.com.
