Bropia.F - MSN worm escalated to MEDIUM RISK by Secunia

This memory-resident worm propagates itself via MSN Messenger by sending a copy of itself using different file names to all available or online contacts. Thus, users of the said messaging program should not accept or open these files to avoid infection. As a general rule, MSN Messenger users should avoid accepting file transfers coming from an untrusted source.


As of February 2, 2005, 6:55 PM (Pacific Standard Time/GMT -8:00), TrendLabs has declared a Medium-Risk alert to control the spread of this new WORM_BROPIA variant that is spreading in Korea, China, Taiwan, and the United States.

Secunia issued a MEDIUM RISK alert for this virus. 2005-02-03 06:25
