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.

A patching worm has just as much potential to halt the internet as a real worm. What if microsoft had released XP SP2 (or parts of it) as a worm? I saw that SP crash 8 out of 10 computers it touched.
