is the netx blaster or sasser coming this weekend ?
we will and can not know if this prediction by Gartner http://www.computerworld.com/securitytopics/security/stor... is just hype or based on real research. There are reasons to doubt it because the internet storm center doesn't show this spectacular increase in activity on port 445 the last days http://www.dshield.org/port_report.php?port=445
but altogether, we should take it seriously, even if it is only for testing and organising the network defensively in case it happens and if it doesn't than we have checked how we could organised to get everybody doing the things he ought to do to protect his pc, server and we the network. so go to www.windowsupdate.com, installa a free software antivirus www.free-av.com and the free homeversion of zone-alarm www.zonealarm;com or activate your service pack2 of xp.
If you have also forgotten about sasser, you can look here
