Microsoft: Old Worm Copies Conficker for New Twist
A new version of the Neeris worm is exploiting the same Microsoft flaw as Conficker. The Neeris worm dates back to 2005, according to Microsoft.
An updated version of an old worm is targeting the same Microsoft vulnerability exploited by variants of Conficker.
This time around, MS08-067—a patched flaw in the Windows Server service—is being targeted by a new variant of the Neeris worm. Neeris first appeared in 2005, but is now back on the scene with new functionality similar to the Conficker worm.
