On July 16, 2003 our friends at Microsoft released Security Bulletin MS03-026 detailing a newly discovered vulnerability and releasing a path to correct it. So I ask, nearly a month later on August 12 are people so surpized when the MSBlaster virus hits? Through security bulletins and windows update services it's pretty easy to tell when something needs to be updated, yet an amazing number of "professionally" cared for systems fall victum. I think a lot of organizations really need start asking questions about the care of their systems and their exposure to the internet.
