basically, it was a big story on the net a few weeks ago. and don't tell me that you can run an xp-machine without a firewall nowadays. it is just not true. i have gone trhrough this several timea already. buy a computer for one of my friends, connect it to the net, boot it up: *blam* - sasser. no chance to install a firewall first...

best regards,
christian
