Auszug: Ein Computerwurm (im Computerkontext kurz Wurm) ist ein Computerprogramm oder Skript mit der Eigenschaft, sich selbst zu vervielfältigen, nachdem er ausgeführt wurde. In Abgrenzung zum Computervirus verbreitet sich der Wurm ohne fremde Dateien oder Bootsektoren mit seinem Code zu infizieren. Würmer verbreiten sich über Netzwerke oder über Wechselmedien wie USB-Sticks. Dafür benötigen sie gewöhnlich (aber nicht zwingend) ein Hilfsprogramm, wie einen Netzwerkdienst oder eine Anwendungssoftware als Schnittstelle zum Netz; für Wechselmedien benötigen sie meist einen Dienst, der nach dem Anschluss des belasteten Mediums den automatischen Start des Wurms ermöglicht (wie Autorun, mitunter auch den aktiven Desktop von Windows). French Navy Rafales planes were unable to take off after military computers were infected by Conficker. Royal Navy and RAF were attacked by a version of Conficker that infected some 24 RAF bases, 75% of the Royal Navy fleet and the Ark Royal aircraft carrier.

Counting from Zero

Counting from ZeroCan a security expert save the Internet from a catastrophic zero day cyber attack by a network of zombie computers, known as a botnet? At what cost?

“Credible and believable, this story is told by a subject matter expert. I could not wait to find out what happened next.”
Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer
“The threat to the Internet from worms, viruses, botnets, and zombie computers is real, and growing. Counting from Zero is a great way to come up to speed on the alarming state of affairs, and Johnston draws you in with his story and believable cast of characters.”
Phil Zimmermann, creator of Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) the most widely used email encryption program
Today, every computer connected to the Internet is under constant attack from viruses, worms, port scans, and spam. Security professionals continually fight to contain newly unleashed cyber attacks, known as ‘zero day' attacks, only to have new attacks launched. Millions of computers have already succumbed, and, without their owner's knowledge, have become slave computers – remotely controlled ‘zombies'. Under the control of organized crime and backed by foreign governments, these computers are morphing into collections known in the industry as botnets, short for robot networks.
Internet security expert Mick O'Malley is the only one who recognizes the growing threat of the ultimate zero day attack on the Internet from a massive botnet, and his unique hacker skills and network of colleagues enable him to fight back. More cyber prep than cyber punk, Mick uses real-life tools and techniques to encrypt all his communications, and uses these skills to break the encryption used by the botnet. Mick uses encryption on a personal level, too, having multiple passports and multiple names and identities. While crisscrossing the globe in the air, on land, and at sea investigating the threat, Mick becomes the target of attacks on his reputation, his identity, and ultimately his life.
Along the way, Mick meets Kateryna Petrescu, a beautiful Romanian firewall expert. Mick's attraction to Kateryna develops as they work closely together and share the excitement and danger. Why is the government following Mick and trying to intercept his communications? Can he stop the zero day attack before it is unleashed? What will be the cost to Mick for his single mindedness?
Unfolding across three continents, the new cybercrime mystery “Counting from Zero” gives a realistic insider's view of the thrust and parry world of computer security and cryptography, and the very real threat of botnets.

Conficker, Mydoom, Iloveyou, Anna Kournikova and Blaster – Windows Viruses

Conficker, Mydoom, Iloveyou, Anna Kournikova, Blaster - Windows VirusesChapters: Conficker, Mydoom, Iloveyou, Anna Kournikova, Blaster. Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 43. Not illustrated. Free updates online. Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Conficker, also known as Downup, Downadup and Kido, is a computer worm targeting the Microsoft Windows operating system that was first detected in November 2008. It uses flaws in Windows software and Dictionary attacks on administrator passwords to co-opt machines and link them into a virtual computer that can be commanded remotely by its authors. Conficker has since spread rapidly into what is now believed to be the largest computer worm infection since the 2003 SQL Slammer, with more than seven million government, business and home computers in over 200 countries now under its control. The worm has been unusually difficult to counter because of its combined use of many advanced malware techniques. The origin of the name Conficker is thought to be a portmanteau of the English term “configure” and the German word Ficker, which translates as “fucker”. Microsoft analyst Joshua Phillips gives an alternate interpretation of the name, describing it as a rearrangement of portions of the domain name trafficconverter.biz, which was used by early versions of Conficker to download updates. The first variant of Conficker, discovered in early November 2008, propagated through the Internet by exploiting a vulnerability in a network service (MS08-067) on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta. While Windows 7 may have been affected by this vulnerability, the Windows 7 Beta was not publicly available until January 2009. Although Microsoft released an emergency out-of-band patch on October 23, 2008 to close the vulnerability, a large number of Windows PCs (estimated at 30%) remained unpatched. French Navy Rafales planes were unable to take off after military computers were infected by Conficker. Royal Navy and RAF were attacked by a version of Conficker that infected some 24 RAF bases, 75% of the Royal Navy fleet and the Ark Royal aircraft carrier.

The Myths of Security: What the Computer Security Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know

The Myths of Security: What the Computer Security Industry Doesn't Want You to KnowIf you think computer security has improved in recent years, The Myths of Security will shake you out of your complacency. Longtime security professional John Viega, formerly Chief Security Architect at McAfee, reports on the sorry state of the industry, and offers concrete suggestions for professionals and individuals confronting the issue.

Why is security so bad? With many more people online than just a few years ago, there are more attackers — and they're truly motivated. Attacks are sophisticated, subtle, and harder to detect than ever. But, as Viega notes, few people take the time to understand the situation and protect themselves accordingly.

This book tells you:

  • Why it's easier for bad guys to “own” your computer than you think
  • Why anti-virus software doesn't work well — and one simple way to fix it
  • Whether Apple OS X is more secure than Windows
  • What Windows needs to do better
  • How to make strong authentication pervasive
  • Why patch management is so bad
  • Whether there's anything you can do about identity theft
  • Five easy steps for fixing application security, and more

Provocative, insightful, and always controversial, The Myths of Security not only addresses IT professionals who deal with security issues, but also speaks to Mac and PC users who spend time online.
