Bot spreads using latest Windows flaw

"The bot has reportedly not spread very widely, according to advisories
posted by Microsoft, Symantec, and security firm LURHQ, which labeled the
program Graweg, Wargbot and Mocbot, respectively. (Symantec is the parent
company of SecurityFocus.)

 The bot, and a second variant detected Sunday, appear to use the Windows
Server service flaw (MS06-040) to spread to computers that have not yet
been patched for the issue. Microsoft fixed the flaw last week."
