ZOTOB and WORM_RBOT.CBQ Mitigation Recommendations

ZOTOB and WORM_RBOT.CBQ Mitigation Recommendations

Cisco customers are currently experiencing attacks due to new worms and bots that are active on the Internet. The signature of these worms and bots appears as TCP traffic to port 445 as well as traffic to several secondary TCP ports depending on the variant of the worm. Affected customers have been experiencing high volumes of traffic from both internal and external systems. Symptoms on Cisco devices include, but are not limited to, high CPU and traffic drops on the input interfaces. This document focuses on both mitigation techniques and affected Cisco products that need software supplied by Cisco to patch properly.
