Nasty E-mail Worm on Tuesday

This is a real bad one! I received over a thousand e-mails with the worm attachment, and then I started receiving many from servers telling me that I had sent them an e-mail with a virus-infected attachment. I knew they weren't really coming from my computer, even though they all showed that they were from my e-mail address. Fortunately this is another one that doesn't affect Macintosh computers. If you got one "from me" please realize that it didn't really come from me or from my computer. The worm got my e-mail address from someone else's computer. Following is a little technical info about the worm:

W32.Sobig.F@mm
W32.Sobig.F@mm is a mass-mailing, network-aware worm that sends itself to all the email addresses that it
finds in the files with the following extensions:

.dbx.eml.hlp.htm
.html.mht.wab.txt

The worm utilizes it's own SMTP engine to propagate and will attempt to create a copy of itself on accessible network shares.

E-mail Routine Details

The email message has the following characteristics:

From: Spoofed address (which means that the sender in the "From" field is most likely not the real sender).
  The worm may use the address admin@internet.com as the sender.
Subject: Re: Details
  Re: Approved
  Re: Re: My details
  Re: Thank you!
  Re: That movie
  Re: Wicked screensaver
  Re: Your application
  Thank you!

Body: See the attached file for details
  Please see the attached file for details.

  thank_you.pif
  your_details.pif
  details.pif
  document_9446.pif
  application.pif
  wicked_scr.scr
  movie0045.pif

Note: The worm deactivates on September 10, 2003. The last day on which the worm will spread is September 9, 2003.

Also Known As: Sobig.F [F-Secure], W32/Sobig.f@MM [McAfee], WORM SOBIG.F [Trend]

Type: Worm

Infection Length: about 72,000 bytes

Systems Affected: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows XP

Systems Not Affected: Linux, Macintosh, OS/2, UNIX, Windows 3.x

Source: Symantec Security Response

If you are a Macintosh user, this worm will not propagate through your computer unless you manually forward to someone, but never-the-less you will continue to receive the infected e-mails from others. If you want to stop it completely, just set up a new Mac Mail "rule section" according to the information here. Macs are soooooooo cool!


First Reports of a Virus Affecting a Paging System

The computer is a client on the TNPP side of the [Unipage] terminal it is for in-coming and out-going traffic across the internet via a CommOne systems soft ware. The program (trojan) was running hidden on the win 2000 oper sys. It could send commands via the serial port of the computer to the Unipage terminal on the TNPP bus. It appears to be disruptive in this way. I only examined it long enough to determine that it runs hidden and has a lot of commands regarding channel parameters in the configuration files. All is all not good!

The back door program was on the computer that receives and sends TNPP for our Metrocall affiliation.  It was causing disruption of the Unipage terminal via the serial port. It was running hidden in the recycle bin. I believe some of the lockups and resets that we were troubled with occurred due to this intrusion.

Bye Bye Boynton Beach

The Former Motorola Paging Headquarters

The two years remaining on Motorola's lease at its former plant in Boynton Beach is unlikely to hold up development of the property, part of a $1 billion office, retail and residential project.

Public Security and Wireless in Mexico

In response to the latest increase in robberies (followed by on-board rapes) in Mexico City's mini-buses, its Police Department, known as Secretaría de Seguridad Pública, is currently evaluating the viability of installing panic-buttons on these mini-buses. The program, currently in its assessment phase—with almost fifty mini-buses testing the solutions offered by over 25 different suppliers, will—if successful—represent the largest deployment ever of vehicle-tracking units in Latin America, since there are over 30,000 mini-buses in Mexico City alone.

Before anybody begins freshening up on their High-School Spanish and packing their bags and goodies to head South, keep in mind that:

a) The program is still under assessment;

b) The Mexico City government is NOT purchasing the units, but merely acting as both an "assessment board" of the various options and technologies (currently spanning from 2-way paging, Cellular, Cellemetry, and Satellite), and as a filter, forcing the various service providers to reduce their prices to a minimum (currently below $520 US per unit, and decreasing, plus monthly service fees);

c) The units—if and when they're purchased—will be bought by the various bus-drivers' cooperatives that already have the government's concessions to provide public-transportation services in various routes throughout the city.

The most promising aspect is the possibility that this trend becomes a law, therefore considerably increasing the market for AVL solutions in Mexico.

FCC 12.5 kHz Migration Order Challenged

In a Petition for Reconsideration filed at the FCC on August 18, 2003, AAPC jointly with Allied, Arch and Metrocall challenged an FCC requirement that Part 90 paging-only frequencies migrate to 12.5 kHz operation in phases commencing with January 17, 2004. Their Joint Petition noted that the FCC's action may have been inadvertent, but, in any event, was "improper as a matter of law" as well as "unwarranted as a matter of fact."

The Petition pointed out that "12.5 kHz technology cannot simply be phased into paging systems over time," and that carriers instead would have to "'flash cut' their systems and equipment to 12.5 kHz." Paging carriers thus "would have to either jettison their existing 25 kHz systems and equipment entirely, or overlay complex and costly networks to accommodate 12.5 kHz modes of operation." The Petition concluded that "the ensuing disruptions to both service and customers, as well as the aggregate financial cost to the industry, would be staggering and potentially fatal to some of the carriers." The Petition buttressed its arguments with a synopsis prepared by the Steering Committee of the Paging Technical Committee evaluating the adverse impact which 12.5 kHz operation would have on the U.S. paging industry.

The Petition requested the FCC to reconsider its decision and to continue exempting Part 90 paging-only frequencies from the general FCC implementation of narrowband channels in the Private Land Mobile Radio Services.

A copy of the Petition is posted on the AAPC Government Relations web page.

Paging Equipment For Sale in Brazil

There is a large amount of paging equipment for sale in Brazil. The current owner bought the equipment from PageNet of Brazil when they deactivated part of their network. One exception is a GL3200 which is still located in Miami. It was never put into the production system because of the decision not to implement ReFLEX. About one-half of the parts are brand-new and in boxes. Other parts came from a big GL3930/3000 that was dismantled and sold for junk.

The owner is willing to have the equipment packed and shipped anywhere but would like to receive payment before shipment. He is also willing to give a discount to anyone wanting to purchase the whole lot of equipment.

If you are interested in any or all of this equipment, please get in touch with me. I will put you in contact with the owner and then you and he can work out all the details between the two of you. A link to the equipment list follows.

High-speed simulcast paging with protocols such as POCSAG and FLEX™ requires microsecond accuracy to synchronize the transmission of digital paging signals.

Zetron's Simulcast System uses GPS timing information to ensure that the broadcasted transmissions between the nodes of the Simulcast System and associated transmitters are synchronized to very tight tolerances.

This system is ideal for public or private paging system operators that use multiple transmitters and wish to create new paging systems or to build out existing systems into new regions.
