Subject: RE: Full-Disclosure digest, Vol 1 #1955 - 19 msgs

Didn't mean to have you apologize, it did it's job. It showed
That I was not vulnerable. I just found it interesting that my
AV called it something that could not be found through search.

thank you

<|>It might be detected as Trojan.Moo or any other variant of 
<|>the JPEG exploit. As I said, it attempts to exploit the 
<|>system to see if it's vulnerable, using an "infected" JPG. 
<|>The file I provided is simply a SFX with a batch file and 
<|>the "infecte" JPG (named exploit.bak). No attempt has been 
<|>made at all to mask what's inside.
<|>I figured those that would want to use it would either not 
<|>worry about the virus warnings, or not get them at all and 
<|>REALLY need the fix it helps provide. =) Email me at the 
<|>address provided in my original email (exploit _AT_ guidoz 
<|>_DOT_ com) and I'll provide a link to the batch files and 
<|>such so you may modify them as you wish.
<|>Sorry for any confusion with the AV. I should of warned 
<|>about that in the original email. (Others have written me 
<|>asking the same question.) I only provided it to possibly 
<|>help others who have lots of friends asking them for help to 
<|>patch their systems. This simply sees if they are 
<|>vulnerable, then leads them through the steps to patch the 
<|>system if they are. (You may have to tell them to ignore AV 
<|>warnings, or disable the AV scanner. Again, I urge you to 
<|>test this on a NON-PRODUCTION machine first. See what it 
<|>contains, read the batch files, see what it downloads, etc.)
<|>Please feel free to ask me any questions. Hope it helps someone else.
<|>Peace. ~G
