New Linux worm similiar to Ramen and Lion worms

Author: JT Smith

Posted at LWN.net: "Adore is a worm that we originally called the Red Worm. It is similar to
the Ramen and Lion worms. Adore scans the Internet checking Linux hosts to
determine whether they are vulnerable to any of the following well-known
exploits: LPRng, rpc-statd, wu-ftpd and BIND. LPRng is installed by default
on Red Hat 7.0 systems. From the reports so far, Adore appears to have
started its spread on April 1."
