Code Red Two Years Old Today

Two years ago today I posted the first public warning and sighting of the Code Red worm. My analyst LeRoy Crooks detected it on the afternoon of Friday 13 Jul 01, and brought it to my attention. I posted my message on 15 Jul 01 and the worm hit full force on 19 Jul 01.


In happier new, according to Netcraft, "nearly 2 Million Active Sites [run] FreeBSD. . . Indeed it is the only other operating system [besides Windows and Linux] that is gaining, rather than losing share of the active sites found by the Web Server Survey."
