Brief Description 

    

Some variants of the Sdbot worm spread via the Internet by attacking random IP addresses. These variants attempt to exploit several vulnerabilities in Windows operating systems, such as RPC-DCOM, LSASS, etc.

If they succeed in exploiting any of those vulnerabilities, they create and run a script, which downloads the worm via FTP.

Panda products detect this script as W32/Sdbot.ftp.

If your Panda solution detects W32/Sdbot.ftp, it does not necessarily mean that your computer has been affected by a Sdbot worm. It warns users of an attack to their computers.>

Visible Symptoms 

    

Sdbot.ftp is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
