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.

I just spent a whole evening with a Powerbook, and then checked OSNews and there it was. People argue with foam at the mouth about whether or not MICROSOFT SHOULD RELEASE ITS PATCHING WORM! And another article is about "New variants of worms" that hit Windows systems. Wake up people! That's gross! That's ridiculous! Are you taking worms for granted or what? They should never ever happen in the first place!
