To calm some people down: The sources which Jean Diaz posted were *FAR* from complete. They do not contain any of the attack or crack routines, nor the routines host-search routines. It is only 15-20% of the code anyway. I do not forsee someone taking this and launching another attack with it, since there is a large amount of work left to be done... However, it is in the most dangerous form --- IT WILL ALL COMPILE. There was no excuse to post this code. The author did finish his work, and agreed NOT to post it. I have a paper (which was distributed at the NCSC Virus Conference on 8 November) in draft form; I will (fairly soon) publish a complete version (electronically as well as physically.) It contains a routine-by-routine analysis of the code, which supplies all of the detail WITHOUT THE CODE ITSELF. The experts at the meeting agreed that this was very useful information, perhaps MORE useful than compilable C code. Mark Eichin <email@example.com> SIPB Member & Project Athena ``Watchmaker''
