ABSTRACT
This past December, a new family of worms was discovered. The family, Santy, attacked Web applications written in the PHP scripting language. Santy is interesting for two reasons: First, its worms used Web search engines to locate likely targets; second, a Santy variant exploited a generic flaw in PHP applications, rather than a specific vulnerability.
