Don't Take Code Red Lightly
Larz has just completed a paper entitled "Dont
take Code Red Lightly".
Abstract: "In confronting malware, there is nothing innovative about
new strains of Klez, Yaha, SirCam and Code Red. Yet all of these worms
have demonstrated unprecedented staying power on the Internet despite
the existence of patches, anti-virus signatures, personal firewall protection
and Intrusion Detection technology. Why are these threats so prolific
and why do new threats gain traction so quickly if all they amount to
are retread malicious code?
This paper analyzes the patterns of emerging malware and presents a strategy
to assist network and security administrators in addressing "new"
yet old threats."
This area will contain information on Viri, Worms, Trojans and etc.
