Microsoft’s patched UPnP vulnerability continues to be exploited

InfoWorld: Top News reports Experts see new variants of Windows 2000 worm.

(InfoWorld) – Security vendors have reported several new variants of the worm infecting PCs running Microsoft’s Windows 2000 operating system. Groups of virus writers are competing to cause the most damage, according to one security company, although the worm appears less severe than some first feared.

So far. Many media outlets are reporting they were hit. It’s hard to tell if we’re at the crest of the wave just yet. In the meantime, ensure all machines are patched, scan all foreign machines coming into your network (laptops, VPN, etc.) and shut down any unnecessary services that require these ports open.
