Brief Description 

    

MSNFunny.B is a worm that downloads the following malware to the affected computer:

  • Dialer.KOS, which establishes a phone connection with premium-rate numbers, significantly increasing the phone bill of the affected user.
  • Cookie/Atlas.DMT, which could threaten user's privacy, as it can be used to create user profiles with information that the user is unaware of, and sent to third parties.
  • Trj/Sfc.A.mod, which disables the Windows file protection system.

On the one hand, it disables the Windows security center, considerably reducing the protection level of the computer, which would leave it vulnerable against the attack of possible threats.

On the other, it disables Windows File Protection (WFP) and the checking of these files when Windows is started. This implies that the Windows protected files can be modified, which could cause problems with the operating system and the installed programs.

MSNFunny.B spreads via the instant messaging program MSN Messenger.

Visible Symptoms 

    

MSNFunny.B is easy to recognize, as it reaches the computer via the instant messaging program MSN Messenger, in a message like the following:
