MondoMor writes "Microsoft's forgot to patch some of its own servers to protect it from the months-old vulnerability exploited by the Slammer Worm, reports C|Net. Oops. Apparently Redmond's network was hit pretty hard. Just goes to show that no matter who you are, you'd better keep your apps patched." Update: 01/29 01:59 GMT by T : And if you're running systems which might be affected, take note: whitehorse writes "The Microsoft KB article for the Slammer patch found here has an incorrect URL for 'Download the patch' referring to KB Q316333 which is only a handle leak fix. The real patch may be found later in the article."
