Retrospective Zotob Articles
Here are a collection of recent articles on the Zotob worm, which is at this point no longer spreading very quickly:
Some XP machines vulnerable to Zotob worm (TechWorld) - A full news article about the (rare) registry modifications that can result in Windows XP being vulnerable to the Zotob worm. Not a new threat.
Zotob epidemic past its peak (SmoothWall.net) - A good summary of events, with links.
From Melissa to Zotob: 10 Years of Windows Worms (eWeek) - Although “From Melissa to Sasser: 6 Years of Windows Worms” would actually be a more exact title for this article, this is a decent, albeit compacted, summary of significant computer worms of the modern Internet age.
We can now officially say that the Zotob worm outbreak is, for all intents and purposes, over.
F-Secure looks at new threats we're dealing with at their Weblog, in an article entitled “More pnp related malware.”
