[TZO-042006] Insecure Auto-Update and File execution (2) May 11 2006 02:21PM
Thierry Zoller (Thierry Zoller lu)

Dear List,

As my advisory has been a bit unclear in certain regards, I would like
to clarify a few questions I have received briefly :

- The Auto update problem with Zango Adware remains, there was no fix.
- The Adware component is distributed by over 10.000 affilates
everyday and I expect it to be installed on millions of workstations (IMO).
- If you compromise (or alter) a DNS server this gives immediate access to
internal client machines.

The impact as citing Kevin F. is : "Dns server pwnage and then mass client ownage"
