This is one not for the faint of heart...
El Reg is quite rumbustious at the most fun of times. However, the
zeal of the comments to one of their current articles has to be seen

Sysadmins, patch now: HTTP 'pings of death' are spewing across web to
kill Windows servers
Patch Tuesday bug reverse engineered by Thursday...
... The security bug (CVE-2015-1635) allows attackers to knock web
servers offline by sending a simple HTTP request...
All a sign of pain and anguish from good design having been swept/lost
under the carpet and of not praying hard enough?
Whatever, that one certainly seems to have rattled a few El Reg pundits!
All in a different world?!
