Hi all,
in the past days our network was stressed from a lot
of network worm (not find from local antivirus,
already up to date) with a stop of the traffic caused
from a lots of arp request. The last one was the
WORM_SDBOT.ACJ a worm that propagates itself using
network shares and a worm that trend micro (up to
date) was unable to find, causing the saturation of
the network switches and the related stop of all the
work. The question is: "is there the possibility to
setup an instrument (even linux based) to sniff the
network traffic with capabilities to find worm?". We
have already a linux based tool for network
monitoring, this tool is useful to isolate host with a
lots of ARP request (typical of the worm), but this
tool can't point us to which worm is doing the

Thanks a lot
I use a Linux box with Samba share named "C$" configured to be "world"
writable, with a directory tree like:
and with two users "admin" and "administrator" without password, so that
these worms that propagates through shares can be easily "trapped" in
I capture about 10-15 new worms at week directly from Internet (I have a
flat ADSL).
Mail me at the private address if you want more details.
