Yet another IRC worm

Posted by cro on Saturday 27 April 2002

There's yet another IRC (or more specifically mIRC) worm doing the rounds. Like most it is spreading as a $decode string that people run in their mIRC windows. It is spread under the guise of a "nospam" filter, and starts "//write nospam". Quite apart from it being extremely lame to run a random script someone tells you about, it is good practice regardless of the source of a file or command to check it before running it - as this is how viruses spread and propogate - through people being stupid enough to run a program they don't know.

So, to remove it, simply type '/unload -rs nospam' in mIRC. If it is successful, you should see notification in your status window.

And remember - NEVER run a script someone messages you unless it is in plain text - why would you run a script that has been encoded in the first place?

Thanks to NordicBots for the notification

Please log in to post comments.
ermn - WATCH out - if you fx write to the new T BOT /msg T //write nospam - you will be banned - please change that

MAN its lame to make 5h17 like that... Here is how I removed it again. This is in my mIRC.ini Before (after infection) [afiles] n0=aliases.ini [rfiles] n0=remote.ini n1=aliases.ini n2=aliases.ini n3=perform.ini n4=nospam ^^ right in the very bottom of my mIRC.ini After (After having deleted it): [afiles] n0=aliases.ini [rfiles] n0=remote.ini n1=aliases.ini n2=aliases.ini n3=perform.ini ^^ bottom of mIRC again AND delete the file called \"nospam\"

How to get unbanned after unloading the worm?

[BF]Freddy_K said on Saturday 28 December 2002

Normally such bans last a few hours (maybe less) - I doubt they will ever last more than one day.
