Windows 2000 break-ins

A few months ago, there was a spate of break-ins that
involved IRC floods and backdoor trojans. I believe that
weak or nonexistent Administrator passwords were
thought to be partially at fault.

I just ran across a Microsoft security bulletin warning
of a new spate of what looks to me to be similar incidents.
Anyone seeing anything?
