They are only in violation of PCI requirements if the unpatched servers in question processed/handled credit card numbers. I could not glean from TFA if this is the case. It's bad practice to leave unpatched servers that don't process sensitive data, but it's not uncommon, unfortunately.

Comment Re:Can't spawn threads or make network connections (Score 1) 168

Servlets don't restrict network connections, and people do it all the time to talk to their database. I know you're not supposed to spawn threads with EJB (because transaction information is kept in thread local storage), but I don't recall anything about not spawning threads being in the servlet spec. I know of a lot of code that does it in various containers without problems.
