    Heads up folks, just saw this tidbit via www.incidents.org site:

    http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?date=2003-08-11

    Not seeing any mention of it elsewhere YET, but I trust the incident.org folks enough to send this out.

    Still eagerly awaiting the DCOM DOS patch for W2K w/ MS03-026 applied before another varient of this thing hits the net and goes after this vulnerability. The mess it could cause if such a worm get's behind a firewall protecting W2K systems...oh boy.

    Redmond....we need the darn W2K DCOM DOS patch FAST.
