It was well known that how much seriously the Internet worm such as the Code Red had an effect on our daily activities. Recently the rapid growth of the Internet speed will produce more swift damage us in a short term period. In order to defend against future worm, we need to understand the propagation pattern during the lifetime of worms. In this paper, we analyze the propagation pattern of the Code Red worm by a computer simulation. In particular, we show that an existing simulation result about the number of infectious hosts does not match the observed data, and then we introduce a factor of revised human countermeasures into the simulation. We also show the simulation results presenting the importance of patching and pre-patching of the Internet worm.
