First the requests are not "fake", but rather the latest off shoot of the original Code Red worm.  This one, some have dubbed Code Red II, leaves an available backdoor into your IIS system that can be exploited at any time.  If you are running an IIS server and patched it for the original Code Red worm then you are safe from infection.  If you never installed the IIS patch from Microsoft then you should do that as it blocks both  the original and this new strain that started broadcasting this past weekend.

I keep getting 'fake' worm requests. What could be the use of these,
