[REBOL] MX records, and that code red stuff

From: mat:plothatching at: 11-Aug-2001 8:16

Hi, I notice that DNS:// really only works for regular dns records. I assume you'd have to go write your own stuff if you wanted to look up MX records? I have a need to develop a good domain/e-mail authentication routine and without the ability to look up MX it's going to get ugly. So... would I have to do my own dialect or something weird like that? On another note, there's probably a few webmasters here. I was looking through my logs and found a lot of those malformed requests which are the Code Red worm attacks. They wont be getting anywhere on my Xitami web server though :) I decided to do something nice and write a script which scans through the logs, collects all the unique ips and then uses the 'net send <message>' command - figuring that most of those boxes have little or no security so that's likely to get through. 507 messages delivered. The message told them they were infected with code red blah blah, how they got this message and my e-mail address. I got quite a lot of appreciative e-mail in return. It might be something you guys could consider? Regards, Mat.
