P.S. This worm uses a flaw patched back in July 2002. Also, the patch was
included in the MS SQL Post SP2 Security Rollup Patch (Aug 2002), as well
as the Jan 17, 2003 SP3 Release.

IMvHO - These types of problems are going to continue to haunt us until we
have sys admins that keep up with the patches in a timely manner.
