eEye: Big Yellow Worm Alert

eEye has sent out an email alert about a new worm they are calling Big Yellow attacking systems running versions of Symantec Antivirus and Symantec Client Security.
This is the same vulnerability that was patched by Symantec in June 2006. There were previous report of exploitation on EDU networks back in November. But according to eEye it is starting to gain some traction.
Check if you’re running a vulnerable version of SAV 10 or 10.1 here. And as always practice defense in depth by running a personal firewall, particularly when not on a private network.
