[Dshield] DDOS Started?

I have noticed that there are no longer any DNS entries for 
windowsupdate.com or www.windowsupdate.com. 
windowsupdate.microsoft.com still works.

I saw reports that the worm attacks www.windowsupdate.com. 
Does anybody know if it is exclusively that IP, or if it will 
try windowsupdate.microsoft.com?

If it will only attack windowsupdate.com, then Microsoft has 
fixed it by elminating that domain for a while.
