Pentagon Shuts Down Websites

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Pentagon temporarily shut down public access to its Web sites Monday to make sure they are protected against a new computer threat known as the "Code Red" worm. 

"Most (Department of Defense) Web sites will not be accessible by the public until this worm no longer poses any threat to DOD networks," spokeswoman Lt. Col. Catherine Abbott said. 

Pentagon computer security experts were instructed to install repair programs, commonly known as patches, to make their computers impenetrable to the worm before making the sites viewable again to the public.
