Hi,

This seems to have started for us about 4:30pm (GMT+11) today.

Lucky for us we block all MS-SQL 1434/udp traffic. We have logged over
130,000 firewall blocked connections across 15 odd sites, and it's comming in
from all over the world.

I don't have any infected servers to study the habits of this worm, but the
payload seems to always look pretty much like this.

I would also recommend that all your IDS sensors get a new signature to record
all outbound 1434/udp in case it sneaks into your networks via private links,
etc.
