Net-Worm.Perl.Santy.a threatens Internet forums
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 12/22/2004 08:39:00 AM.

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management systems, has detected a new worm, Net-Worm.Perl.Santy.a. This worm infects certain web sites by exploiting a vulnerability in phpBB, a popular package used to create Internet forums. Santy.a is spreading rapidly, and has caused an epidemic. However, this does not directly affect end users - although the worm infects web sites, it does not infect computers used to view these sites.

Kaspersky Lab recommends that all users of phpBB should upgrade to version 2.0.11 to prevent their sites from being defaced.

Update:

F-Secure said that the Santy worm, which defaced web sites and used a Google search string, was filtered by the search engine around midnight.

That has effectively stopped the spread of the worm. F-Secure said a huge number of websites using PHP were affected - but now only a minority are.
