    CR's 10/1 exit was predicted by some of the analyses of CR.
    
    From http://www.incidents.org/react/code_redII.php ...
    
    "Before each attempt to connect to a new target, the worm
    checks the local time to see if the year is less than 2002 
    and if the month is less than 10. If either of these checks 
    return false, then the worm ceases the propagation cycle 
    and reboots the server. Note that this implies that all worms 
    will cease propagating by Oct. 1, 2001."
