Threat: Worm.Win32.Busan.k
Vulnerability: Insecure Communication Protocol
Description: Busan.k launches a windows cmd console on the infected host so that it can send and receive messages back and forth over TCP port 2121. The worm uses unencrypted plaintext socket communication allowing anyone who can sniff network traffic to read any communications sent or retrieved. This can disclose sensitive information to third-party well positioned attackers.
