Hey Dan, haven't heard of that one. But it does sound strange. I bet
many people on this list would like to get a ahold of that file. Also it
would be a good idea to run it thru www.virustotal.com and some of the
other online malware sites. Just in case it is a filename change..of a
new common malware.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] wintcpmod.exe Hear of it?
I noticed today that a program wintcpmod.exe, located in two
places on my hard drive, windows\system and windows\system32 was
attempting to access port 53. My firewall blocked it and sent an alert.
I am on the road, so I have not had time to fully investigate this yet,
but a Google search produced very little about this program. It sets a
registry key for local machine "run", and can be seen on the process
screen. It does not appear in the services list. I was able to kill it,
but in my Google search, someone has claimed that they were unable to
kill the process. I am running WinXP SPk2 fully patched, and Symantec
AntiVirus, ZoneAlarmPro. Microsoft AntiSpyware does not report anything.
Has anyone else seen this program?
