Brief Description 

    

RedCode is a worm that spreads through computer networks and which affects MS Index Server 2.0, MS Indexing Service and MS Internet Information Server (versions 4.0 and 5.0).

The effects of RedCode are dangerous as it drops a Trojan in affected computers, which allows attackers to gain complete control of the Web servers in a network. It can also restart and block computers by flooding their memory.
