Dates?[edit]

In the article it is mentioned that Microsoft released a patch for the CodeRed Worm II on a date earlier than the mentioned virus release date. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stevag (talkcontribs) 12:25, February 8, 2007

Yeah, Code Red II exploited a security hole in IIS. Microsoft had previously released a security patch for the hole in IIS. The problem was not everyone had installed the patch... AlistairMcMillan 17:42, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Updated the article, so hopefully this is clear. AlistairMcMillan 17:51, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
To Get rid of it you must disconnect your computer from the internet and must restart your computer then get the next patch. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.144.225.137 (talk) 18:20, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
