Here’s an interesting solution to the blaster worm problem. An anti-virus virus.
Every computer that is infected has the virus – and it still has the secutiry hole. You could write a virus of your own that took advavtage of this security hole to remove the virus and to patch the security hole. You could make it part of the windows update upgrade.
What would happen is when the attaking virus tries to infect a machine with the anti-virus the attacked computer detects this and identifies the IP address of the attacking computer. It then would use the same security hole to upload a program to the attacking computer that would remove the virus and patch the hole. It would also turn the attacking computer into an anti-virus computer and the patch would spread as fast as the virus did – fixing all the systems.
Something to think about …..
