Sophos has issued protection for W32/Tilebot-CZ, which is a worm and IRC backdoor Trojan for the Windows platform. It spreads to other network computers by exploiting common buffer overflow vulnerabilities, to other network computers running MSSQL servers protected by weak passwords and by copying itself to network shares protected by weak passwords. It runs continuously in the background, providing a backdoor server which allows a remote intruder to gain access and control over the computer via IRC channels.
