“Here you have” Virus (aka W32/VBMania@MM)

Not applicable

New virus, described here:


Is this virus recognized by the PAN devices?  I'm not sure how to look that up, or I would do so myself.

If not, any thoughts on mitigating risk?  I don't see .scr files in file blocking.

Thanks, it looks to me like it's not recognized.

Any thoughts on mitigation?

It might be listed under a different name. Trend Micro recognizes it as WORM_MEYLME.B.

I don't see anything on any virus. You would think you could just select from the drop down and hit enter and it would pull up a list, but I get nothing, even when I put something in there still nothing.

unfortunately, no.

if you're not seeing anything, you're doing it wrong.

type w32 , change type to virus, hit find, and see an enormous list.

This was slated to be included in last night's emergency Threat/AV content release for PAN OS 3.1.x.

PAN OS 3.0.x will be addressed with next Tuesday's content release.

I still dont see this added into the threat database...is it known by a different name in Palo Alto land?

What about the ability to block .scr files. It seems odd to me that there is a way to custmize nearly everything but not a way to add a file extention to the picklist???

Is .scr going to be included in some future release? Or the ability for the end user to add his own file extensions for blocking?

.scr files are included in the category "Portable Executables" (aka PE).

on my firewall i created a file block rule for the PE filetype in both directions.

Apparently the PA support guy I talked to yesterday did not know this... Is this knowledge in a document somewhere?

How do we search for this? looking for VBmania, or "here you have" comes up with no results.

As much as vendors have their own names for malware, its pointless when we can't search for

it so we can let our customer know they're protected.
