Hewlett-Packard has worked out the bugs in software it says will slow down the spread of worms and viruses within servers.

HP said it solved the problem by creating access through a network driver. Although the idea is a good one, SecurityCurve analyst Ed Moyle said, he's unconvinced it will work. "I suspect that the implementation might fall short of the ideal in determining threats ahead of time," he said.
