    Same here. I'm not usually the person to be paranoid enough to warrant a firewall; however, I have recently discovered how vulnerable windows systems are with this RPC exploit. I looked at my log and within 30 minutes there were 3 TCP attempts on port 135(from 3 different systems), which proves how wide-spread this worm is. Oh, and I was wrong about the filename; it is msblast.exe, not msworm.exe. After an antivirus update norton found it, and deleted it.

    Again, I will show you just how wide-spread it is. My computer has been turned on for about 15 minutes, and about every 30 seconds to 1 minute there is an attempt from a worm.

    Of course I have heard of the term Script Kiddie, everyone has. Why are you asking? Or are you implying something?

    I know how wide-spread it is. I do tech support for a major ISP. Many, many calls. We've actually blocked 135-139 and 145 to stop it from spreading.

    Yesterday Pan Canadian had to shut down all of their computers and servers for most of the working day to manually remove the infections. What ISP do you work for?

    I'm curious, why cannot you disclose which ISP you work for? Did your ISP ask you not to disclose that information? Cause that would seem somewhat odd.

    sorry im late.

    Or are you implying something?
    Yeah, you should have taken some messures to begin with.
    (crack at you "I'm not usually the person to be paranoid enough to warrant a firewall" part, sorry but i couldnt resist. it took me awhile to get alot of people using firewalls).

    Basicly a US state has been screwed over by this. Its doing some damage, but so far it seems like it was written for more a joke than anything else.
