    Hah!

    And what happens when you have a failing UPS in your system,
    attached to the Hospital network? The default installation on the UPS
    software
    sends out Windows messaging notices - "warning - power going down in 5
    minutes" to the entire facility. Operating room, emergency room plasma
    screen... Generates a lot of support calls!

    Just a quick comment..

    And I thought Paul was exaggerating about the mailroom guy being able to
    ping the CT scanner:

    "Cadenas said the VA operates under unusual security constraints with
    regard to medical devices attached to its network. Information security
    staff members, for example, have no authority to apply security patches
    to the computers that control medical devices. Unpatched computers are
    vulnerable to infections by malicious code - such as the recent Sasser
    worm."

    Amazing....
