We have a small network (20 users) behind a Pix 506 firewall. Lately I have had to reboot the Pix every day. There doesn't seem to be a specific time this happens but when it does it just seems unresponsive. To get the Internet back up I just power cycle the Pix and everything works again. I am running v. 6.3(1). It almost acts like Code Red did many years ago. Is there another worm similar?
Thanks in advance.

use "show xlate" to see if you have pages of xlates to one particular inside IP address.
Same issue with MSBlaster and Welchia worms earlier this year..

You can try blocking all icmp outbound and see if that helps.
