RE: What do you want your ISP to block today?
From: Owen DeLong > When was the last time you installed a Micr0$0ft security fix that was > less than 5MB? (I have yet to see one) SQL Slammer patch fit on a floppy (I remember - I walked around with that floppy for hours that night). Blaster patch fits on a floppy unless you're running a 64-bit version of Windows, in which case it is over 5MB. Seems like the patch for Windows Server 2003 32-bit may be ~4-5MB, too. > Shall we also compare the realtive timetables between vulnerability > awareness and general patch availablility? Not gonna touch that one. :) FWIW, I only run Linux servers, so I don't have an interest in defending MS - just setting the filesize record straight :) John
