SirCam Worm

Information about SirCam worm:

                     SirCam is a mass mailing worm uses e-mail addresses stored in Windows Address book and also collects addresses from temporary Internet folder to distribute infected messages. SirCam is also network aware worm. It searches for network shares and infects them too. SirCam worm is also known as W32.SirCam.Worm, W32.SirCam or TROJ SirCam.A.

                     SirCam arrives as an e-mail attachment, message subject and body varies randomly. The message body first and last line will be the same. The worm will contain two extensions, first will be DOC, XLS, ZIP and EXE and the second extension selected randomly from PIF, LNK, BAT or COM. The mail subject and body will be in English or Spanish.

First Line: Hi! How are you?
Last Line:
  See you later. Thanks 

                     When sending the infected message, the worm will append a file from the local system to disguise the user. The attached infected file will contain double extension like secret.doc.pif, It will e-mail the infected files using its own SMTP engine.

                     If the infected e-mail attachment is executed, the worm code executed first. It copies itself to the file SCam32.exe in the windows folder. The worm also drops Sirc32.exe in the Recycle bin with hidden attribute. After that it activates the corresponding application. The worm is loaded automatically by changing the following keys in the registry.



                     Then it searches for network share, if found it copies to RUNDLL32.EXE file. The original RUNDLL32.EXE file is renamed to RUN32.EXE. It also adds the entry @win \recycled\SirC32.exe in the AUTOEXEC.BAT to load it on the next startup.

                     SirCam worm contains destructive payloads. When the payload is activated SirCam will delete all files and directories. When sending infected attachments, it distributes files from the system. So the infected user may loose confidential information.
