Alleged Exploit for Sasser FTP Server Released
We've heard of intruders exploiting systems already infected by worms, but this is another way to take advantage of poorly deployed systems. A Romanian coder released sasserftpd.c recently. This code attacks the FTP server used by Sasser to propogate. The rogue Sasser FTP server listens on port 5554 TCP on versions a through d and port 1023 TCP on version e. The Romanian exploit attacks this FTP server.
