    Question PHP Forms and Preventing Code Red worm

    Hi All,

    I am trying to find a way in PHP that I can completely prevent the code red worm from infecting me through web forms.

    I have been told that implementing SSL will stop this kind of hack - I have also read that a reverse proxy will do the job..

    Does anyone know of a completely PHP method of doing this.

    What I want to do is have a PHP form that can integrate its own security for this kind of hack.

    Many thanks in advance, Rainbow

    Uhhh...There is nothing for you to do. The Code Red worm has been eradicated a long time ago along with the security hole it exploited.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Hi Logic Earth

    Thanks for the info - I heard there was a second generation of this worm - is this true?

    Second gereration...not really. Its the same thing just a different payload. It too has been eradicated years ago. In either case, the worm did not exploit web forms or PHP.
