Windows 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.

Anyone ever think that since Microsoft is probably not happy that most users are still on Windows2000 and 98, that they might have had an influence on this?

Yes, they issued a patch, but how many mom and pops actually patch their computers? Maybe they made it a little too easy for the worm writers to create this?
