After infecting a system with U.S. English as the default language,
one of the code red threads will go dormant for 2 hours, insert a
handler which causes any requested URI to return the 'hacked by
Chinese' page, wait 10 hours, and remove the handler.  Thus, you will
only see defacement on machines that have been infected for more than
2 and less than 12 hours.
