Feds thwart Code Red mutant

Author: JT Smith

Reported at Network World Fusion: "The FBI says it has discovered an attempt to
spread a new version of the Code Red virus
and is in the process of telling the owners of
about 6,000 computers that their systems have
been infected.

Warrants have been issued in the case, which
the FBI thinks will prevent those responsible for
the virus from triggering denial of service
attacks from the machines."
