New Linux worm

Gadi Evron reports on a new piece of malware for Linux:

1. The worm is based on ‘kaiten’, which has been going around in different variants for a long time now.

2. This worm is new.

3. The first part exploits PHP applications, like these variants normally do.

4. The second part spreads to other systems.

5. The worm connects to a botnet C&C based on two Fast-flux DNS RR’s which are not there anymore, and as they change, are taken down.
