Just another reason why we recommend non-MS systems for web services. They are just too darn swiss-cheese insecure.

We use Linux or OS X systems exclusively for this.

Web services as in HTTP servers or as in SOAP?

Maybe we can sue M$ for causing our net conenctions which we pay money for, to slow down.

How about suing the people that wrote the worm in the first place? How about suing the people that left their SQL Server installations unsecured on the internet? There's plenty of liability to go 'round.

Update: Apparently the buffer overrun that the worm exploits has been fixed for quite a while. Maybe the admins are more at fault than I thought :D

Maybe this will do some good and a few more system administrators will move away from Windows... but in making sure that the system stays working many administrators won't touch it if its working until its too late... Delicate balance, any thoughts?

Or was that a fortune cookie from last night's Super Bowl buffet?
