Re: Best methods for tracing a mass-mailing worm infected workstation on a network?

    | I've had instances in the past where a workstation has been infected
    | with a mass-mailer worm and whilst I resolved the issue in the end I
    | encountered the following circumstances in relation to the infected
    | workstation:-

    | - no up-to-date anti virus package found any mass mailer worms. I
    | tried Panda, McAfee, Norton.
    | - no port 25 traffic (other than the mail server) was going through
    | the router (I checked all the logs/tables)

    | In the end, via a process of elimination and used malware bytes anti
    | malware to find, and remove the virus.

    | I'm interested in finding out about any other proven methods for
    | tracking down mass-mailer infected workstations. It seems it can be
    | like finding a needle in a haystack.


    | What methods would you suggest?

    Packet tracking for oddball address patters.

    Which "mass-mailer worm" or is this really a spambot infection ?
