‘Here You Have’ Worm Runs Wild Hitting U.S. Organizations Hard

Last week a hacker named, “Iraq resistance” who has been trying to unite other like-minded hackers in a cyber jihad effort towards the U.S. initiated a malicious computer worm know as the “Here you have” worm.  A computer worm is a self-replicating malware computer program that uses computer networks to send copies of itself to other computers on a network without any user intervention.

The “Here you have” worm spread through many computer networks, bringing down e-mail servers at some of the biggest U.S. organizations, such as, Disney, Proctor and Gamble, Wells Fargo, and NASA.  It is known as the “Here you have” worm because of the subject line associated with the worm when it is sent out. Below is a description of the message:

Subject: Here you have

It seems the attack was partly motivated by the actions of Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who called for people around the world to burn copies of the Koran on Sept. 11.
