We had a lot of requests to put together a quick free scanner, like we've
done in the past, for this SQL worm.
This is the first version and it is bound to have bugs. Feel free to email
me any issues directly and we can work on them.
The scanner is non-intrusive, wont crash your servers, in identifying
vulnerable systems. It WILL NOT identify already infected systems. Because
of the nature of the worm it keeps any valid data from getting to the victim
system. We suggest using sniffers and IDS's to determine already infected
You can download the scanner from:

If you have any questions or comments feel free to mail me directly. As we
find bugs and make improvements the changes will be reflected on our
website. So go there for the latest ... that way we don't have to flood this
list with email.
Thanks to NGSSoftware (http://www.nextgenss.com/) for discovering the flaw
the SQL worm uses and for publishing a technical write up which made this
scanner possible. Once again illustrating that details ARE needed to help
the good guys.
