    Exclamation Road Runner users...

    I thought Cable modem and Router are going crazy. I ran NetStat on all three of my computers and no activity on any computers. The activity leds on all three are not blinking (no activity). But my WAN activity led is going crazy along with my cable modem's activity.

    Code Red: Code Red is a worm that attacks Microsoft web servers. At the present time, Road Runner customers in North Carolina are experiencing heightened activity in the forms of port scans and hack attempts. Customers will see the activity/data light on their cable modems flashing constantly due to the proliferation of this worm. Road Runner network engineers are working on a solution that will lessen this activity without affecting the performance of the network. This activity has yet to have a negative impact on the Raleigh Division's overall network performance.

    I've been getting that too sometimes. Here is what I got.
    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).
    Blaa Blaa Blaa..... Just get it fixed. The only thing big that this has done to me is kept me from getting on MinMX servers off and on, and also one of the web hosts that hosts one of the web sites I develop was hit by it and 7 servers were down for a couple days.

    Cool

    It only effects WinNT/2000 machines with MS Index Server/Transaction Server installed. So if you have that configuration, install the patch and problem solved. If you don't have that configuration, don't worry about it.

    I'm also seeing that activity. My cable-modem and router are going nuts, but it doesn't get to my actual computer.

    I called the tech support line, and they gave me some line about the dns server pinging the cable-modem every millisecond instead of every few seconds. Which is obviously complete bull**** because if it was just pinging the modem, it wouldn't get to the router. It seems to have slowed down a little bit in the past couple of days.

    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.

    Thank you.

    Road Runner Security

    I just wish @home would come clean on their problems, I have heard that in an attempt to get rid of the worm that they make no mention of, they are closing port 80... I have had problems with many of the routers on the @home network and the exodus routers that they forward to, and i believe it is from them being indirectly affected by the worm do to the excess traffic, but I agree if people would just patch the servers then this thing would be go away. Just wondering if anyone else on the east coast of the us has seen any similar slowdowns and such. Of course Excite@Home is going bankrupt as it is... so they probably aren't concerned with service except for the fact that more customers = more profit.
