Re: Question on WORM_NETSKY.P

Hi Marty

This worm gathers target email addresses from files with the following
extensions
htm/html/xml/shtm
asp/cgi/php
doc/txt/rtf
WAB (Addressbook)
eml etc

It uses the DNSQuery API imported from DNSAPI.DLL library to query the
default mail exchanger (type=MX) of the domain of the target email address.

If the first method fails, it invokes GetNetworkParams API imported from
IPHLPAPI.DLL library to acquire the local domain DNS server. It manually
queries the mail exchanger that pertains to the domain name of the target
email address.

Subject: Question on WORM_NETSKY.P


Hi,

I read a bit about WORM_NETSKY.P and I still have a question.

Can the worm read the incoming email addresses from the infected
computer's inbox or does the email address has to be present in the
address book?

Marty!
