Funny you mentioned ol' Joe...

An article on the paper today stated that only 33% of U.S. citizens are "Tech Savvy". Meaning allot of Joe's out there are clueless....

I bet ol' Joe's AV signatures where last updated in 98 or 99...

I know Microsoft has a product that allows you to donwload patches to a centralized server (within your infrastructure) and let's you patch your internal systems from it. Heard our MS admins talking about it a while back....

Two words: Joe Sixpack.

Phrased differently - the sites that have enough clue and infrastructure to
deploy that product are not, in general, the sites that are getting whacked
the first time their single box connects to the net.....
