zinno -> how bagle works on a LAN? (18.Jul.2004 2:12:00 AM)

Sorry for the noob question, but there is some stuff i don't really understand about the worms of today "[Smile]"

scenario: 1 server 2003 with isa and internet connection & 1 infected client

If u have setup ISA-server, and one of your clients is infected with bagle and send out mail with his own bagel buildin SMTP server, will it use port 8866 (listed as port to block) to send these mails ?

If your ISA-server is set "allow all" policy for outbound traffic, will these mails still be send through port 8866 on the isa-server aswell?

So if i place a sniffer on port 8866 of the server i should be able to detect infected clients? "[Big

Well, If you permit tcp/udp from any to any it'll most certainly pass though your ISA server.

But! - In ISA 2000 the "All IP Traffic" only counts as what have been created in protocol definers.

A better way of creating rules might be to limit access to what you actually need.

Examples:
Your internal smtp needs access to your mailsweeper (if you have one) in the DMZ - Your clients most certainly dont.

Your internal DNS Servers needs to do outbound lookups using their forwarders - your clients don't. If you don't have internal dns server - they do =)

Clients might need access to ports 80/443 - and prefebly a virusscan filter such as Webshield or likewise.

Sniffing the LAN for outbound packets on specific ports could be handled by an IDS/IPS system - but using tcpdump/ethereal etc might give you waaay to much output if you end up with a few infected clients.

All depends on your security policy I guess.
