Il Virus che ha rallentato Internet (se ancora non lo sapete)

Ecco la rassegna stampa più completa che il mio news aggregator mi ha offerto:

SQL virus reports.

7AM Pacific. Heard a report on NPR that some kind of Internet-wide denial of service attack is underway. They quote Microsoft saying it's serious. If you have more information, esp Web pages I can point to, please post a comment on my Radio weblog. Thanks.

Reports: CNN, BBC, Slashdot, Beta News, Google.

Freedom.Org: “Quick fix is to firewall port 1434/UDP traffic, and reboot the affected SQL servers.”

Slashdot: “If you run Microsoft SQL Server, make sure the public Internet can't access it.”

Beta News: “The attack used a buffer overflow to execute code on a vulnerable SQL Server, causing that system to randomly seek out other computers to infect and in the process consume massive amounts of bandwidth.”

Anne Bradstreet: “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
