You've heard of Code Red, now computer security experts are warning people about Code Red TWO.
It's a new strain of the Code Red worm that infected computers around the world last week.
Code Red TWO leaves a "back door" open on infected computers for anyone who wants to get into the machine.
But experts say it won't affect machines that have already been protected against the original Code Red worm.
