The article reports that Astaro Security Gateway appliances and other systems running its Astaro Security Linux V6 software are now protecting customers from worms that exploit a flaw in Windows 2000 systems as of October 2005. Astaro's technology detects and blocks these worms with its Virus Protection and Intrusion Protection applications. The worms can steal information, cause severe performance degradation on infected systems, delete files, and launch denial of service attacks against web servers. The Astaro Security Gateway software and appliances sit between the corporate network and the outside world and provide protection for all types of networks and all types of computer systems, including Windows, Linux and Unix-based PCs and servers.
