This is a new SQL Spybot, but this dropped not dropped off payloads named
winlog.exe and soundblaster.exe - this dropped wm1exe.exe.

W32/Rbot-VT  is  a  network  worm  with backdoor functionality for the
Windows platform.

The  worm  copies  itself  to  a  file named wm1exe.exe in the Windows
system folder and creates the following registry entries:



     W32/Rbot-VT spreads using a variety of techniques including exploiting
     weak  passwords  on  computers  and  SQL servers, exploiting operating
     system  vulnerabilities
(including  DCOM-RPC, LSASS, WebDAV and UPNP)
and using backdoors opened by other worms or Trojans.

W32/Rbot-VT  can be controlled by a remote attacker over IRC channels.
The  backdoor  component  of W32/Rbot-VT can be instructed by a remote
user to perform the following functions:

start an FTP server
start a Proxy server
start a web server
take part in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
log keypresses
capture screen/webcam images
packet sniffing
port scanning
download/execute arbitrary files
start a remote shell (RLOGIN)
steal product registration information from certain software

Patches   for   the  operating  system  vulnerabilities  exploited  by
W32/Rbot-VT can be obtained from Microsoft at:
