RE: Code Red 2 cleanup; reporting..
Interestingly enough it seems Microsoft's patch creates a DOS against IIS servers that redirect requests: http://www.incidents.org/diary/diary.php#801 We were seeing IIS crash on a CodeRed patched NT box over the last few weeks. It turns out to be caused by the combination of CodeRed and Microsoft's patch. Changing the redirect behavior of the server seems to have fixed it. Given the way IIS crashes I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that there is another buffer overrun somewhere in either the patch or the redirect code. Mark Radabaugh Amplex (419) 833-3635
