Hi!  It's it possible to forward the binaries for this worm ....or... whom
were you working with at Microsoft on this possible Dcom worm?

Bill is wanting a copy of the binaries if you have them handy.

"Don't lose sight of security. Security is a state of being,
not a state of budget. He with the most firewalls still does
not win. Put down that honeypot and keep up to date on your
patches. Demand better security from vendors and hold them
responsible. Use what you have, and make sure you know how
to use it properly and effectively."
