The Code Red Hype Hall Of Shame
'We've had no end of entertainment these past weeks with the Code Red and Code Red Junior IIS worms. Vast battalions of 'security experts' paraded themselves eagerly before the press, trotting out their finest doomsday quotes for a shot at fifteen minutes of fame. Meanwhile, legions of well-groomed, academically-inclined twinkies armed with tape recorders and Masters' Degrees in journalism greedily sucked them up, and obediently generated the most laughable headlines predicting that Code Red would break the Internet.'

Just in time for Code Red III, bigger and badder then both its daddy and its grand-daddy! (Actually, I don't know that Code Red III derives from Code Red II; both may come from I. But's its more fun to say this way.)
