Suddenly picking up internal mail as exploit.html.objdata??

Postby corcoran » Nov 02 04 11:59 pm


Yesterday; The Gate started picking up email from Outlook XP/2003 versions (internal) to external addresses as having the above exploit on them.

i've checked a couple sites and the condition is common for SPAM mail; which we're obviously not sending --

here are the headers for one such message:

WinGate DataScanning has blocked the following message:

Message: 0000000232

Size: 262936 bytes
Reason: Kaspersky AV for WinGate - Data stream (0000020132) is infected with Exploit.HTML.ObjData

Please contact the Administrator ( wingate.virus@damo******* ) to release this email.

That URL gives Kaspersky's view on it. There is an interesting post at the bottom of that page:

Kaspersky Website wrote:Other

If a Kaspersky antivirus product identified this malicious code on your system between 18:00 and 22:00 Moscow time [GMT+3] on 1 November 2004, it is possible that this was a false alarm. We recommend that you update your product and scan again to make sure.
