    The Welchia (MSBLAST.D or Nachi) worm infects machines via network connections. It can attack entire networks of computers or one single computer connected to the Internet. Similar to the original MSBlast worm it exploits a known windows vulnerability that is easily patched, however few systems seem to have this patch installed. It attacks Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines and exploits the DCOM RPC Vulnerablity. It uses TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) to download its files into a system. It also exploits one more vulnerability known as the WebDAV exploit to travel from system to system.

    Ironically, this worm attempts to patch the RPC DCOM Buffer Overflow. It first checks for the running Windows version and then downloads a patch from Microsoft. In essence this worm patches your computer against the MSBlast.A worm. When the current system year is 2004, the worm removes itself from the system.
