The Slammer worm, which preys on unpatched Microsoft SQL Server software, was big news over the weekend. Embarrasingly, Slammer managed to find its way into Microsoft’s corporate intranet. A good portion of the campus still has no network access (mine just came up a few minutes ago.)

I can only guess that this attack was timed to coincide with the first anniversary of the [Trustworthy Computing]( exec/craig/10-02trustworthywp.asp) initiative.
