Code Red Tribulation is nigh, Steve Gibson warns

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "So to break it down: during this current period of dormancy, remnants of the first
worm, along with a second strain possessed of a more random IP generator, have
been scanning for and infecting vulnerable machines, and will continue doing so
until all the infected machines begin packeting the former IP of whitehouse.gov on
20 August.

This they will do mercilessly through the 27th; and during this electronic Tribulation
the worm will devour enough bandwidth to bring all of Christendom to its knees."
