OpenOffice worm downloads bunny porn

Filed under
Security

A newly-discovered worm targeting OpenOffice attempts to download indecent JPEG images onto compromised Windows, Mac and Linux PCs.

Sophos warned today that Badbunny-A, a macro worm for OpenOffice/StarBasic that also drops scripts in other languages, downloads pictures of a man wearing a bunny suit performing a sexual act in woodland.

The malware infects computer users when they open an OpenOffice Draw file called badbunny.odg

A macro within the file performs different functions depending on whether the user is running Windows, MacOS or Linux. These can include executing other self-replicating JavaScript and Perl viruses.

The worm also downloads and displays an image of a scantily clad woman with a man dressed as a rabbit, irrespective of the operating system being used.
