probably a bot. I would send a copy of the bot away, either quarantine the machine for forensics or reinstall it.

Some bots still require identd service but many don' anymore.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] Exploiting a Worm

Hi list,

I'm pentesting a client's network and I have found a Windows NT4 machine with ports 620 and 621 TCP ports open.

When I netcat this port, it returns garbage binary strings. When I connect to port 113 (auth), it replies with random USERIDs.

According to what I have found, this behaviour would mean the presence of the Agobot worm.

A full TCP scan revealed the following result:

(The 29960 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
21/tcp    open     ftp
25/tcp    open     smtp
80/tcp    filtered http
113/tcp   open     auth
135/tcp   filtered msrpc
137/tcp   filtered netbios-ns
139/tcp   filtered netbios-ssn
443/tcp   open     https

19464/tcp filtered unknown
20738/tcp filtered unknown
25717/tcp filtered unknown
25950/tcp filtered unknown
28974/tcp filtered unknown

I have checked the open ports and no-one seems to be the worm ftp server or something useful related to the worm. Some ports allow input but don't reply anything...

Does anyone knows a way to exploit this worm to get access to the system?

Thanks in advance,
