Code Red Virus

Do you remember the code red virus? It’s a very simple virus to kill and almost as easy to prevent. Or so I thought, but then again maybe I’m just seeing people laziness, lack of knowledge, caring or both. I reset the apache logs on the first of April. Since that reset I’ve log 71 different IP’s attempting to infect my server. Now of course this virus doesn’t know or care if you’re an IIS server or apache it just knows it wanted to try and infect everything that responds to port 80. Anyway that’s just an observation.
