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.

Worms get out of control

In case you don't know the first worm was designed to automagically patch a piece of software and it soon got out of control. Imagine the disaster of a piece of software designed by Microseft combined with the potential havok wrecking of a worm. The best thing they could do is unplug all those PCs running the proprietary piece of shit Windows XP system from the network and ony allow non-Windows OSs on the Internet.

You need to recheck your worm-history.
