As many have noticed, there has been a huge surge in some probes to Windows NT system ports. People who have not kept up with the windows updates, and don't have a properly configured firewall installed are being shutdown remotely against their will. All because they didn't know, or didn't care enough to keep up with it. On BBR it seems quite a few members are coming out of the woodwork as they are having this problem, and its funny. They are now just finding out that it could have been much more serious, and some still just want to apply the patch only. One guy was asking on behalf of customers as he works at BestBuy, and doesn't want to recommend a firewall to customers. This could have been much worse, it could have been like Code Red for RPC, and I think most people remember when Code Red happened.... There were so many systems infected so quickly that it could not be controlled until people actually started patching their systems. I wonder when people will realize that they need to protect their NT Operating system as its always acting as a server, but many still don't know or care about it until its too late. As it goes with most security issues, and common mistakes of running warez/p2p files.
