    Looks like a new internet worm is on the loose, this time targetting BlackIce firewall products.

    The Internet Storm Center have issued a rare yellow alert. See http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?date=2004-03-20 for details of this vulnerability and links to patches.

    If you're using BlackIce then I recommend that you patch immediately.

    Black Ice used to be the best, IMO. But I kept having problems with it that no one, including Black Ice support, could resolve. The firewall setting would change itself from Paranoid to Trust without notice.

    It was almost like a game to make sure I caught it before something else did. After several months of fooling with it, I changed to Norton, which is not my favorite due to their anti-affiliate ad blocking. But it does at least remember what level of protection you want.

    I use ZoneAlarm with no problems.

    I'm definitely seeing this worm.. UDP packets probing port 37452 on my PC from port 4000 on the infected PC.
