Hi All

Do Viruses like Nimda and Codered affect Routers ? If, yes, how they affect..and how can we avoid them ?

Can you suggest me any document to read through ?

Thanks and regards

Re: Virus and Routers

They affect routers in the sense that they tend to generate a lot of traffic which the routers have to route, which can result in the routers becoming overloaded. This can result in dropped packets, routing protocol convergence issues, and so forth.

This is one of many papers written that discuss the affects of worms like Nimda and CodeRed (try Google to find more): http://www.renesys.com/projects/bgp_instability/
