A worm is a program that self-propagates across a network, exploiting security flaws in widely-used services. A worm is distinguishable from a virus in that a worm does not require any user activity to propagate. Worms usually have a payload, which performs activities ranging from deleting files, to sending information via email, to installing software patches. One of the most common payloads for a worm is to install a backdoor in the infected computer, which grants hackers easy return access to that computer system in the future.An RFID worm propagates by exploiting security flaws in online RFID services. RFID worms do not necessarily require users to do anything (like scanning RFID tags) to propagate, although they will also happily spread via RFID tags, if given the opportunity.
Mmm RFID worm, sounds tasty. The only problem i have run into so far is getting or creating an RFID reader. There’s probably a DIY out there somewhere, but I’m not so good at complicated soldering and PC boards and such. I’ll try and find a simple work around with some other RF transmitter.
HAcks and Sacks to all
