W32.SQL-Slammer Pseudo-Random Number Generation

Algorithm creator(s)

Probably the same malicious person who wrote the SQL-Slammer worm that uses the PRNG.


PB author(s)

Wayne Diamond


Description

A very simple but effective PRNG used by the W32.SQL-Slammer worm to attack random IP addresses.


Note

For info on the worm itself, just websearch for SQL Slammer worm

'The W32.SQL-Slammer Pseudo-Random Number Generator
'The worm goes by the names of SQL-Slammer (by anti-virus companies) and Sapphire (by eEye)
'A disassembly of the worm can be found at http://www.techie.hopto.org/sqlworm.html
'Here is a PB implementation of the PRNG algorithm the worm uses. The main difference is
'that the worm uses ebp-4Ch as its seed location (which is the location of the remote
'IP address used by the worm). My implementation simply stores this as a global variable.
'Ive made it show the output as both hexadecimal and IP address formats, as the worm is
'actually generating random IP addresses. The worm uses GetTickCount to initialise its seed.
