To my knowledge: mambo, phpgroupware and wordpress.
I submitted a sample to Clamav AV yesterday.

It is likely that XML-RPC for PHP vulnerabilites are same as being exploited in last November, the list of affected products is very long:

This conclusion is because of same malware name being used now, several AV vendors say this is a variant of Linux.Lupper, BDS/Katien etc.

AntiVir recognises it as Worm/Linux.Lupper.B, Kaspersky Anti-Virus as Net-Worm.Linux.Mare.e. Others don't.


Some other vendors has protection too. According to Web sites of AV vendors Sophos sees this as Linux/Lupper-H and Trend uses name ELF_MARE.C (Executable Linux File), only some examples listed.
