You have seen email worms spreading around half the world in just a matter of a day or two. What if a worm employs other modes of proliferation too, in addition to the email way?!
Security Analysts from MicroWorld Technologies inform that ‘Worm.Win32.Feebs.db’ is a new entrant to the Feebs family that spreads via email, P2P Networks and Web /FTP Servers.
“Feebs represents that breed of worms which explore multiple ways of proliferation. In here, the worm makes sure that it’s got plan B and plan C in place, if the first method fails. Apparently, this strategy is proving successful as one can see Feebs spreading fast in targeted groups,” explains Arti Taru, Assistant Manager, R&D, MicroWorld Technologies.
