ROAD RUNNER ALERT
VIRUS ALERT. YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED.
Dear Road Runner Subscriber:
Road Runner, like many other ISPs and indeed the entire Internet, has
today experienced an attack on its network which is apparently
attributeable to the Code Red virus. It is possible that this virus has
infected the PC's of Road Runner's subscribers using the Microsoft
Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000 operating systems. Infected PC's
may continue to flood the Internet and Road Runner's network with virus
generated messages (even without your being aware of it).
Road Runner is working to alert all of its subscribers to this problem
and to instruct them on where to find and install the patch necessary to
eliminate the virus. In the meantime, Road Runner subscribers may
experience slow network response, flashing connectivity lights on the
cable modem, and other symptoms (such as unusual port scan log activity
or increased firewall activity) while Road Runner and the Internet
community work to control the impact of this virus.
IF YOUR PC IS RUNNING WINDOWS 2000 OR WINDOWS NT, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY
DOWNLOAD THE CODE RED PATCH FROM MICROSOFT'S WEBSITE
(www.microsoft.com/security) AND RESTART YOUR PC.
IF YOUR PC IS RUNNING WINDOWS 98, WINDOWS 95, OR WINDOWS ME, OR IF YOUR
ARE A MACINTOSH USER, NO ACTION IS REQUIRED ON YOUR PART.
We ask for your patience while Road Runner continues to work with the
Internet community to address this virus.
