Zafi is a mass-mailing worm that sends infected emails with Hungarian text and an attachment disguised as a link.The worm sends emails only to addresses that end with .hu so it is not likely to spread outside Hungary.Zafi was programmed to be active only in April and will cease to work starting from the 1st of May.
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.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
When first run, Zafi copies itself to the Windows System Directory with a random name. The copy is then added to the registry with a random name under
To disguise its presence the worm opens a random link from the user's browser history. This tries to make the user believe that an actual link was opened from the infected email.
Another copy of the worm is created with a random name and '.DLL' extension.
The list of addresses the worm collects is written to several other '.DLL' files in the System Directory.
Zafi collects email addresses by scanning through files with the following extensions:
htm wab txt dbx tbb asp php sht adb mbx eml pmr
The worms sends infected messages to all addresses that end with '.hu'.
The infected emails have the following structure:
From: [infected@sender] or [firstname.lastname@example.org] To: [targeted@user] Subject: kepeslap erkezett! Tisztelt felhasznÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â¡lo! annek kepeslapja erkezett! A kepeslap feladoja: Erzsi A lapot az alibbi cimen tudja megtekinteni: http//matav.hu/viewcard/index=p4uo5683535GSb0123fhhf578840f0623cv2 vagy a mellekelt internetlink kattintisival. ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦'dvÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â¶zlettel: Matav e-card! http//www.netezz.matav.hu/
The attachment is named to 'link.matav.hu.viewcard.index42ADR4502HHJeTYWYJDF334GSDEv25546.com'.
On 1st of May Zafi displays a political message and exits.
The other payload is a routine that terminates processes of different security applications and system tools:
