11/9: Rbot-PG Worm also a Trojan
November 9, 2004

W32/Rbot-PG is a network worm and backdoor Trojan for the Windows platform. It allows a malicious user remote access to an infected computer.

W32/Rbot-PG spreads using a variety of techniques including exploiting weak passwords on computers and SQL servers, exploiting operating system vulnerabilities (including DCOM-RPC, LSASS, WebDAV and UPNP) and using backdoors opened by other worms or Trojans. W32/Rbot-PG can be controlled by a remote attacker over IRC channels.
