    Black Worm(KamaSutra) Hits India hard – Payload day of 3rd Feb had arrived today

    Removal Tool

    It has been observed that the Black Worm also known as W32.Vb.i or W32.Nayem.E has been actively spreading in India since last two weeks now. It’s a mass-mailing worm that also spread using remote shares. After a long gap there has been an outbreak kind of situation as this worm was successful in spreading all over the globe within few hours when it first appeared over the Internet.

    The reason why the worm was so successful in spreading all over is just because it spreads by creating a mime encoded compressed executable with a different extension (.HQX, .BHX), which didn’t had any kind of header to classify the file.

    As a result the mail gateway scanners were not able to decode the attachment and scan the infected files. This is why the worm got skipped even though the mail severs have updated anti-virus scan engines. Many of the leading AntiVirus software’s had to do some changes to their scan engine to make the scanners decode the file and scan for the infected attachment.

    AntiVirus Quick Heal form India was the first anti-virus to detect this worm when it first hit the net according to the report generated and published by PC-Wallet Magazine, Germany. According to PC-Wallet, Germany the worm was first caught and detected on 16th January 2006 at 10:00 (GMT) by Quick Heal AntiVirus.

    This worm attaches itself to e-mail messages as an executable file with various different names and occasionally this worm compresses itself by ZIP and encodes the compressed file by mime encoding and then attaches the encoded file to the e-mail messages.

    The worm has several network spreading routines. One of them enumerates all available shares, then reads the values of the registry key where personal documents and recently opened files are stored. It copies itself to such folders by the file name with executable extension of the same name as the document in that folder. The worm also copies itself to network shares with the same name. This worm once active first tries to delete the popularly known international anti-virus folders (e.g. Norton AntiVirus, McAfee, Trend etc.)

    This worm has a dangerous payload, it will delete all the documents, worksheets, presentations, database files and compressed backup files from the system on every 3rd day of the month. This is very serious payload considering that the worm has spread all over India and the first payload day of 3rd February had arrived today . We recommend all our users to have their AntiVirus updated, up and running. All the Quick Heal users are already protected from this worm from day one.

    Hundreds of thousands of computers are believed to be infected by a worm set to activate on Friday that could corrupt documents using the most common file types, including “.doc,” “.pdf,” and “.zip,” experts have warned. The worm is expected to affect machines mostly in India, Peru, Turkey and Italy, said Mr Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer for Finnish security company F-Secure Corp. The worm, known as “CME-24,” “BlackWorm,” “Mywife.E” or a number of other monikers, even tries to disable antivirus software that is out of date, he said. F-Secure also has created a free removal tool. “If you are infected, and you find out about it today, you still have time to get rid of the virus,” Mr Hypponen said. Microsoft Corp issued an advisory today warning customers about the worm, which affects most ver sions of its Windows operating system.

    GCalendar – goes live

    Ack : ~ Amit Agarwal

    It looks like Google Calendar (GCalendar) is coming really soon. The domain is live now though it shows the main Google search page for the moment.

    Even before the launch of Google Talk and Google Base, their subdomains went live few days before the actual launch. The same can be anticipated with GCalendar since the Google calendar subdomain is now live.

    It’d be nice if Google integrates calendar into GMail. Yahoo Mail already supports calendar which can also be synched with Microsoft outlook. Let’s hope gCal could be much better. Google calendar should also connect with the Calendar plugin in Google Desktop and even the TODO list plugin.

    Economy of India – fourth-largest in the world

    Ack : ~ Kunal Vyas

    The economy of India is the fourth-largest in the world as measured by purchasing power parity (PPP), with a GDP of US $3.36 trillion. When measured in USD exchange-rate terms, it is the tenth largest in the world, with a GDP of US $691.87 billion (2004). India was the second fastest growing major economy in the world, with a GDP growth rate of 8.1% at the end of the first quarter of 2005–2006.

    However, India’s huge population results in a relatively low per capita income of $3,100 at PPP. The country’s economy is diverse and encompasses agriculture, handicrafts, industries and a multitude of services. Services are the major source of economic growth in India today, though two-thirds of the Indian workforce earn their livelihood directly or indirectly through agriculture. In recent times, India has also capitalised on its large number of highly educated people who are fluent in the English language to become a major exporter of software services, financial services and software engineers.
