Growing Threats Against VoIP and E-mail

eSoft announces that users of its InstaGate Integrated Security Gateways and ThreatWall Content Security Gateways have been protected against the rapidly proliferating "Happy New Year" worm since it began propagating. eSoft customers received signatures designed to repel the newest worm as of December 29, the day it began spreading via emails containing seasonal greetings in the subject line.

According to a CNET.com article about the worm, these messages are sent with the subject line "Happy New Year" and contain an attachment called either postcard.exe or postcard.zip. Once the recipient opens the attachment, malicious software is downloaded from the Internet which infects Windows computers, and like many viruses, the "Happy New Year" worm is not recognized by all virus scanners. Furthermore, once the computer is infected, the worm looks for open mail proxies and begins spamming to infect other computers. On January 2, CRN estimated that the "Happy New Year" worm accounted for 12 percent of all e-mail traffic over the weekend, according to antivirus vendors.

"Voice over IP (VoIP) technology provides many advantages to companies and individuals over both traditional telephone services and traditional IP communications. But, like other technologies, it also brings with it the potential for abuse. And as more people implement VoIP, we can also expect more frequent exploitation of this potential."
