[thelist] Code red?

Hi list,

I'm running Apache on the same box I use as a gateway for my DSL (Win2k
Pro), and I keep getting scanned by (I think) Code red - the requests are
along the lines of:

host217-35-35-139.in-addr.btopenworld.com - - [27/Jan/2002:12:47:57 +0000]
"GET /scripts/..%252f../winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+dir HTTP/1.0" 403 - "-"

Results of ipconfig on my ADSL-connected box tell me my IP was at this time, and full scans by Sophos show no virii on any
of my machines.

Is it possible I'm infected with this? Is it coming from someone else in my
ADSL contention group (or whatever it's called)?

I've got onto BT Openworld, but they're usually not much cop, so advice
would be most welcome :-)
