    Email from my ISP."CODE RED"

    Just got this a few minutes ago.Road Runner is under attack from the Code Red Virus.I have Win 2K so I guess I'd better go download a patch from Microsoft to vaccinate my box. :

    I recieved a similar notice myself. What Road Runner fails to mention is that you're only vulnerable if you run IIS.
    If you're not running IIS, there's no necessity for the patch.
    Perhaps RR services should try a search at securityfocus.com (or just about any other security based website)before they go off half-cocked with an unimformed, scare-tactic oriented mass emailing campaign.
    Whilst I do understand their concern, there's really no excuse for an ISP (especially a major ISP) *not* to have their facts straight about something like this.

    Roadrunner Did not mention any of that in the E-mail they sent me.I just sighed and got the dang patch.
