Does Symantec have a signature to protect against this worm?

The problem is all the companies use a different naming convention. So you would need to call Symantec as they probably have it internally.

It looks very close to the W32.Changeup article update that Symantec released yesterday:

The worm itself is old, but a new variant has kicked up the detections again.  Symantec just modified existing signatures, whereas McAfee added variant label to their signatures.

Definitions and IPS signatures are available now, if this is indeed W32.Changeup.  We have the following protections in place for the latest version of W32.Changeup:



Intrusion Prevention System

System Infected: W32.Changeup Worm Activity


There is also a list of servers that can be locked at the firewall level, and advice on how to prevent the spread of autorun threats and lock down Windows network shares.
