Don't Take Code Red Lightly
March 23, 2003

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."
