New worm for Linux

On December 22nd a new worm for Linux
appeared on the Internet. This is the second worm in the last couple of
months. (The one before this one, Lupper, appeared on 7th November
2005). This shows how relatively rare Linux worms are in comparison to
Windows worms.

We've called the new worm Net-Worm.Linux.Mare.a, and
it uses php include to propagate. A modification of
Backdoor.Linux.Tsunami spreads together with the worm.
