Heads up!

Okay, according to this article on AustraliaIT, nine days after it was announced, there’s an exploit to take advantage of a nasty Windows vulnerability. This is a baddie, folks. It can take over computers in a hurry. So far, there haven’t been any reports of the program being used, but it’s out there. So what are you waiting for? Go patch it!!

  1. Well, the damn thing is in the wild now. It’s called MSBlaster and we got hit with it this week. Damn hackers.
    Of course, I’d like to point out that none of the Novell Netware or RedHat Linux servers that I’m responsible for were effected.
    Thank you for your support!
