Is Gumblar or GENO Malware Worm Detected by AV on ScreenOS?



Article ID: KB14343 KB Last Updated: 09 Jun 2009Version: 1.0
Gumblar is a web based worm, also known as GENO, and it is rapidly spreading through the Internet.  The Sophos virus signature that detects this is called JS.Redir-R and the Trend Micro virus signature that detects it is called JS_AGENT.AOIP.  Is Gumblar detected by the AV feature on ScreenOS?

As of 6/3/2009, the AV Kaspersky engine on ScreenOS detects the presense of the Gumblar or GENO Worm.  The virus signature is called Trojan-Downloader.JS.Gumblar.  Other vendors have different names for it.  For Sophos, it is JS.Redir-R, and for Trend Micro, it is JS_AGENT.AOIP

To verify if you have coverage of this, check the version of your AV signature version by issuing the command "get av scan".  Look for the AV signature version and ensure that the version is later than 06/03/2009.
