Another Asian worm. I just updated my internal virus database.

Computer security centers around the world reported the spread of a new computer worm Monday night into Tuesday morning, and warned that it could seize covert control of computers with "stupid" passwords. The worm is called "Deloder" and has been reported in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and the United States, computer security firms said Monday night. "The CERT/CC has received reports of rapid propagation," said the Computer Emergency Response Team at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh. "Widespread Win2k file share scanning (port 445) caused by Deloder. Drop all port 445 traffic on firewalls," the SANS Institute in Bethesda, Md., fairly ordered the systems administrators it serves. [...] "It attempts to log on to the machines as administrator using several passwords listed in its body," the antivirus company Trend Micro confirmed. Deloder seeks computers running Windows XP, Windows NT and Windows 2000 with any of 50 passwords including "password," "computer," "admin," "abc," "test," "12345," "sex," "secret" and "007." If the user has been so dumb as to use such a readily guessable password, Deloder is in.
