NAME

    Apache::Earlybird - Responds to worm attacks with e-mail warnings

SYNOPSIS

    Make sure your Apache is compiled with mod_perl and put the
    following in your httpd.conf:

        PerlModule      Apache::Earlybird

        <LocationMatch "/(root|cmd)\.exe">
            SetHandler perl-script
            PerlHandler Apache::Earlybird
        </LocationMatch>

        <Location  /default.ida>
            SetHandler perl-script
            PerlHandler Apache::Earlybird
        </Location>

DESCRIPTION

    The Earlybird gets the worm.  This Perl module should be invoked
    whenever IIS worms attack.  We don't have to worry about such
    attacks on Apache servers on Unix or Linux, but we can be good
    Internet citizens and spare ourselves and others the log clutter
    and lost bandwidth by notifying webmasters or ISPs of infected
    machines.

LICENSE

    You may distribute this module under the same license as Perl itself.
