I would ike to see something like this <grin>.  I was thinking of
putting a CGI script as /default.ida on my apache server and doing
some funny stuff with it -- maybe combine the previous auto-alert
stuff to notify the system it is hosed.  Now if windoze had 'mail' and
an MTA this shell access could allow one to mail the admin (as "root"
of course) right after the probe.  Does anyone know how to kill a
process (ie the worm or IIS) or shutdown a windows system from the
command line?
