This worm currently propagates by exploiting an unchecked buffer in the
Index Server ISAPI extension and applies only to web servers (IIS4 & 5)
running on WindowsNT and 2000.

Dear all,

I'm hearing more noises that the Code Red Worm is becoming a serious

See :

Although they only mention Microsoft Windows 2000 and IIS webserver, I
can't find any clearance/danger notes for other webservers running on
systems different from Microsoft. Can someone verify that this worm has no
effect on Apache 2.3.20 running on S.u.S.E. 7.2 with Kernel 2.4.4?

Yours sincerely,

Michelangelo van Dam
