    Microsoft released further details of a rash of attacks on Windows 2000 servers that has so far stumped the software giant's research team.

    In an advisory posted Aug. 30, Microsoft warned customers that several companies had recently observed an "increased level of hacking activity." Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) told system administrators to be on the lookout for Trojan horses--programs that appear to be legitimate but aren't--and for several specific kinds of odd network behavior.

    On Wednesday, Mark Miller, a security specialist for Microsoft PSS, said that the attacks seemed to be ongoing, but at a much reduced level.

    Well, they're Windows servers - how can the attacks stump Microsoft? Of course the servers are going to be attacked...they have enough security holes to make it a far easier job that attacking any *nix based server. ;)
