"Slapper" OpenSSL/Apache Worm Removal Utility

ISS X-Force has publicly released a tool to identify and remove the Slapper
worm from infected systems. This tool verifies that a host is infected by
communicating with the Slapper backdoor over UDP port 2002. If the
presence of the backdoor is detected, the tool then uses the backdoor to
delete itself, and kill the running worm process.
