I looked again at MS's writings on this
and have not seen anything that indicates that machines not running IIS, or that have WebDAV turned off, are vulnerable. Is MS deliberately hiding that information from even those who read their security bulletins (showing again, as if we needed it, how important it is for us to subscribe to NTBUGTRAQ), or do they not believe that the problem exists, or what?
