    Morto Worm - What are you doing to stop this worm?

    pierce

      Hey,

       

      My security team have asked me to look into and see if I can do any detective work on this worm.

       

      I understand its a very basic worm that uses remote desktop and some common passwords so no real threat if you have a decent password policy.

       

      What are you doing to either stop or mitigate this risk?

      McAfee say you need at least DAT 6453 which is the latest avilable.

       

      My gut feeling is this is nothing to worry about as the password policy will mitigate all the risk involved with this.

       

      thanks,

      Pierce
