Is there anything unique about the URL for the request BlackWorm makes
towards "webstats.web.rcn.net", such as the arguments to df= ?
The worm accesses a unique number after the df=. If you supply a
differnet number, you access (or create) a different counter. df=testme
also qualifies as a counter.
Strangely, ?dfudge=xxx also works. I guess the script only checks for df
and ignores anything after that. df = data file? Anyway... if the
numbers are different, you may have other applications/viruses/things
than the Nymex accessing a different counter.
It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
