Windows The internet is full of hosts running unpatched versions of Windows. Should Microsoft release patching worms to fix every vulnerable system on the Internet in a matter of minutes? That's one of the hot questions that security researcher Jose Nazario, famous for his WormBlog, answered in this interview on SecurityFocus. It's a nice read, especially when they start comparing computer worms to nature phenomena.

Principal Skinner: Milhouse? Do you like the beach?
Milhouse: Who doesn't?
Principal Skinner: Good. I want you to pick up all this medical waste that's washed up on the shore, here.
Milhouse: Ow! I pricked myself.
Principal Skinner: Well, just keep working. You'll prick yourself with the antidote sooner or later.
