Pretty.Good.Worm BEWARE! - FrostyTech.com Pretty.Good.Worm BEWARE!
Sun Mar 05, 2000 | 1:21P| PermaLink
This is a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT. Seems that the Pretty.Good.Worm is going around the web really fast. One of our computers was hit with it, and now it seems another unrelated Computer Reviews website has been hit with it from a Singapore based Computer Reviews Site. So this virus is making its way around the world very quickly. For more information read what Mcafee has posted about this, or click on the source to go directly there.

W32/Pretty.worm.unp is the unpacked edition of the original "W32/Pretty.worm" Internet worm. It was discovered on 2/15/00. On 2/23/00 AVERT upgraded its risk assessment from Low to Medium-On Watch, due to a significant increase in prevalence. On 3/2/00, in response to the worm's continued, rapid spread, AVERT once again upgraded its risk assessment to HIGH. W32/Pretty.Worm.unp infects Windows 95/98/NT systems. W32/Pretty.worm.unp arrives via email from affected users who have also run this Internet worm. It appears as an attachment titled "Pretty Park.exe", with the icon of a character from the animated television series "South Park".
This worm will try to email itself automatically every 30 minutes to all email addresses listed in the Internet address book.
It will also attempt to connect to an IRC server and join a pre-determined IRC channel in such a way that the worm's author could use the IRC connection to retrieve such information as the computer name, registered owner, registered organization, system root path, and Dial Up Networking username and passwords.
