– According to the creator of the virus, this day will be Netsky’s day
– Panda Software advises users to treat e-mails received with caution and update their antivirus solution, as well as staying informed about the appearance of any new malicious code

March 11 will be Netsky’s day. At least this is what the creators of this virus have declared in a text hidden in the code of the K variant of Netsky.

The message reads as follows:

“Skynet AntiVirus – We want to destroy malware writers business, including MyDoom & Bagle. To F-Secure and so on, we do not want damage systems, we only want to avoid that Bagle continues his dirty business. We have respect of your work (Your heuristic scan is not good enough! Make it better). When the beagle and mydoom loose, we wanna stop our activity. thats now. And personal words to mydoom: Your are so i never seen in my life. A Sample is bin laden and saddam. Your are more, more as more. worse than bad, the only worst. I cannot describe you, you’re so lame. And to the mydoom thiefs: You will go into the prison next time in texas, nice to meet the bagle author there. , its similar your food, you know. And do not watch too much porn. Last words to all AV firms: We are the Skynet, not netsky! You can use commands on port 26 to deactivate the Skynet!. This is the last version of our antivirus. The source code is available soon. Note that the optimization limit is also reached. You can’t get more with smtp engines. bagle and mydoom can continue his dirty impact. the 11th of march is the skynet day.”.

“Skynet Antivirus – Queremos destruir el negocio de los escritores de malware, incluyendo a Mydoom y Bagle. A F-Secure y otros, no queremos dañar sistemas, s??lo evitar que Bagle contin??e con su sucio prop??sito. Respetamos su trabajo (¡Su heur?­stica no es tan buena! H??gala mejor). Cuando beagle y mydoom pierdan, cesaremos nuestra actividad. eso es ahora. Y unas palabras personales para mydoom. Sois lo que he visto en mi vida. Ejemplos son bin laden y saddam. Sois m??s, y m??s, peores que malos, lo m??s malo. No puedo describiros, sois tan in??tiles. Y para los ladrones de mydoom: La pr??xima vez iréis a prisi??n en texas, y estaréis encantados de encontrar all?­ al autor de bagle. es igual que tu comida, ¿sabes? Y no veas tanta pornograf?­a. Unas ??ltimas palabras para las compañ?­as antivirus: ¡Somos los Skynet, no Netsky! ¡Pueden usar comandos sobre el puerto 26 para desactivar Skynet! Esta es la ??ltima versi??n de nuestro antivirus. El c??digo fuente pronto estar?? disponible. Vean que el l?­mite de optimizaci??n también se ha alcanzado. No podéis conseguir m??s con motores smtp. bagle y mydoom pueden continuar con su sucio impacto. El 11 de marzo es el d?­a de Skynet”.

According to the message, the creator or creators of the Netsky worms could be preparing some kind of attack on March 11, which could see the appearance of an even more virulent variant or the emergence of several new variants at the same time.

Of course, there is every possibility that the message is simply an empty threat but in any event, Panda Software advises users to be on the alert in order to prevent any possible incidents.
