I just checked my webserver logs, and it's like 90% of my traffic. It's beginning to really piss me off that SO many people have webservers running and don't know how to properly patch their computers. The more I check the servers, the more I realize that most of these people probably don't even know that they have IIS running. Please, everyone, if you're running Windows 2000 (I don't care if you have IIS installed or not), download the patch at: [url]http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/Release.asp?ReleaseID=32011[/url] and reboot your computer. Thanks.

Code Red? The new red Mountain Dew? Yeah that's some mean stuff. I love it. Hard to drive by a store without picking up a case.

Code Red doesn't damage any system files or cause failures, although it is possible that another virus could have. Code Red, once it installs itself on your server, will actively search the internet for other computers running IIS 4.0 or IIS 5.0 (Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 web server software). When it find it, it installs itself and then begins to replicate from there. It continues to do this until the 19th of the month, and from that point until the first of the next month it does its best to do a distributed denial of service attack on the IP addresses used by the White House. Rebooting will eliminate the virus. Installing the patch will prevent it from reinfecting your computer. Pretty simple really. An ounce of prevention...
