The worms attack is based on a web application model developed using PHP as programming language and using MySQL database. In this case, the vulnerabilities found on the web application will be match to the method of attack from worms, and finally come out with a guideline to prevent such attacks. Even this guideline will not hundred percent prevent the attack, hopefully for anyone who follow this guideline will be on the safer side and at least minimized the possibility of attack to happen on their web application.

This guideline will be a framework for those who are new in this field to prevent themselves from being a targeted attack from this internet attacks.
