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 :slight_smile:

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.

Hi Logic Earth

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

Speak soon, Rainbow :slight_smile:

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.

OK Cool,

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:
