* Due to an increase in the number of Bloodhound.Exploit.18 events being reported, the Deep-Sight Threat Analyst Team is increasing the ThreatCon from Level 1 to Level 2. As of November 8, 2004, Symantec AntiVirus detects exploitation of the Microsoft Internet Explorer Malformed IFRAME Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (BID 11515) as Bloodhound.Exploit.18.
The increase indicates a notable rise in activity associated with this unpatched vulnerability. Additional information about the resulting system associated with the increase in Bloodhound.Exploit.18 events is available in the November 24, 2004 Daily Report.
As the Microsoft Internet Explorer Malformed IFRAME Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability is currently unpatched, The Deep-Sight Threat Analyst Team recommends that administrators filter outgoing traffic to the central registration system at 218.65.86.24.
Additionally, blocking outbound access to the following destinations, which are related to the systems exploiting the IFrame vulnerability is highly recommended.
