DECEMBER 21, 2004 (IDG NEWS SERVICE) - Antivirus companies are warning Internet users about a new, fast-spreading worm that infects Web servers running a popular package of online bulletin board software and uses the Google search engine to find vulnerable servers to infect.

The worm, dubbed Santy.A, uses a vulnerability in a popular free software package called phpBB to spread across the Internet, infecting computer servers that host online bulletin boards and defacing those sites with the words "This site is defaced!!! NeverEverNoSanity WebWorm."

Yeh, just read about it on [url="http://it.slashdot.org/it/04/12/21/2135235.shtml?tid=220&tid=217&tid=169"]Slashdot[/url]. Some guy wrote:

"I got hit HARD! :( This worm is unbelieveably evil.

What it does is search all volumes on the server for files with the .asp .php .shtml .html .htm extentions and overwrites them with the 264 byte file that simply states "Web site defaced"

Ouch... [:0]
