The first worm specifically targeting the Open Office
It effects Windows, Mac and Linux computers. Sophos
, the anti-virus company admits that it poses a low threat.
worm first infects you when you open an OpenOffice Draw file called badbunny.odg. A macro included in the file performs different functions depending on whether you are running Windows, MacOS or Linux.
The worm drops one of two Ruby script viruses (in files called badbunny.rb or badbunnya.rb)
The worm drops badbunny.py as an XChat script and also drops badbunny.pl which is a tiny Perl virus infecting other Perl files.
The dropped XChat and mIRC scripts are used to replicate and distribute the virus, and they initiate DCC transfers to others of the original badbunny.odg OpenOffice file.
