why am I posting about a W32 worm here ............

Look out for a new worm that gets in via port 135 and is due to DDos the M$
Windows Update site on Saturday via port 4444 on an infected machine.
Symantic have a clean up tool, just in case you get it at work or something.
The worm should block some DCOM communications OLE, freeze out network
settings and mess with the control panel.

Great quote from Channel 4 News : "If you want to avoid this you could
always use an Apple or Unix", hmmmm maybe he should have said Linux, anywho
it made the national news :)
