Batten Down the Hatches

The Internet Storm Center handlers are doing what we’re all doing. Playing a game of prognostication. Will there be exploitation of MS05-051 this weekend. SANS and Microsoft Security Response recommend patching now. So what are you still doing here. Get thee to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
Just to throw a monkey wrench into things some people have reported to the ISC issues with the MS5-051 patch.
We cant make decisions based solely on what happened in August, but one good sign is that at this point exploit code has not been made public. Perhaps we will survived the weekend.
I know I’ve got school things to be working on and dont need to have any patching excitement.
