Something Must Be Happening

While the Internet may not have ground to a halt, the Code Red worm seems to be back at it. Slashdot pointed to's tracking of the worm, showing that it continues to try to spread. As of right now, over 115K hosts have been infected today. My firewall has been hit all day with the same kind of traffic as before. Apparently an awful lot of sysadmins are still having trouble dealing with the concept of applying security patches.

CD Protection Broken

Macromedia's SafeAudio technology that was supposed to make it impossible to rip a CD audio track has, to no one's surprise, been cracked. The worst part of SafeAudio is that is corrupts the CD in order to prevent copying. When will the recording industry learn that they can more effectively counter piracy by complying with a government order to lower CD prices and by not releasing records with only one decent track? Thanks Slashdot.

Q3A Routing

id's Eric Webb made a couple of .plan updates today regarding some network issues that some people are experiencing with Quake III Arena. It seems like things are fixed, but check his .plan for all the details.
