This IRC-based backdoor-worm was found on August 16th, 2005. The backdoor provides unauthorised access to an infected computer and also has the capability to spread to remote computers using the PNP exploit.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
If the infection is in a local network, please follow the instructions on this webpage:
The executable is a file of around 10KB.
When the backdoor's file is activated on a computer, it copies its file to Windows System folder as wintbp.exe and then starts the copied file. Then it adds the following registry entries to ensure that it is started when a user logs on or the system is restarted:
[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "Wintbp" = "wintbp.exe"
The backdoor connects to IRC server 126.96.36.199, joins an IRC channel called '#tbp' and creates a bot there.
The backdoor has the ability to spread to remote computers using the PNP exploit on port 445. If the attack is successful a shell (cmd.exe) is started on port 8594. Through the shell port, the worm sends a tftp script which instructs the remote computer to download and execute the worm from the attacker computer using built-in TFTP server listening on port 69.
Here's the summary of the ports used in attack:
