Worm Propagation and Generic Attacks
March/April 2005 (vol. 3 no. 2)
pp. 63-65
Elias Levy, Symantec
This past December, a new family of worms was discovered. The family, Santy, attacked Web applications written in the PHP scripting language. Santy is interesting for two reasons: First, its worms used Web search engines to locate likely targets; second, a Santy variant exploited a generic flaw in PHP applications, rather than a specific vulnerability.
Index Terms:
Santy, worms, virus, Web applications
