THE COMPUTER INCIDENT ADVISORY CAPABILITY

CIAC

ADVISORY NOTICE
________________________________________________________________
Information about a new version of the "WANK" worm

October 30, 1989, 1615 PST
Number A-4

This is a follow-up bulletin to CIAC advisory notices A-2 dated
October 16, 1989 and notice A-3 dated October 20, 1989. These
notices informed you about the "WANK" worm attacking HEPnet and
the NASA SPAN network. The previous notices contained
information on obtaining tools to combat this worm. The purpose
of this notice is to inform you about a new version of this worm
which has already attacked over 60 sites.

The "WANK" worm is still attacking VAX/VMS systems connected
via DECnet. The worm, however, has been modified somewhat. The
method of attack is the same, except that this version calls its
process OILZ_nnnn (where nnnn equals a random number string),
instead of NETW_nnnn. Preliminary information indicates that
this modified version of the worm changes passwords of any
account into which it successfully enters, regardless of whether
those accounts are privileged accounts.

The tools described in CIAC advisory notice A-3 are effective
against both the original "WANK" version and the new "OILZ"
version of the worm. These tools may still be obtained by
anonymous FTP access from node ROGUE.LLNL.GOV (128.115.2.99), or
from SPAN and ESnet. In addition, CIAC again recommends sound
password management to counter this new threat.

If your site has been infected, if you observe unusual activity,
or if you have any questions, please contact either of the
following CIAC team members:

David Brown, (415) 423-9878 or FTS 543-9878
or
Gene Schultz, (415) 422-8193 or FTS 532-8193

or send electronic mail to:ciac@tiger.llnl.gov
