MICROSOFT HIT BY CODE RED
Posted at August 09, 2001 07:18 AM Pacific
PROVING AGAIN THAT it doesn't practice what it
preaches, Microsoft on Thursday confirmed that the
Code Red worm infected two servers used for its
Hotmail Web-based e-mail service.
"A few MSN Hotmail servers were affected by the Code
Red worm virus. The servers were promptly removed from
the MSN Hotmail environment, shut down, and patched,"
said a Microsoft spokeswoman in the United Kingdom,
adding that the infection was detected late Wednesday
afternoon in the United States.
