We had blocks in place for tcp 1433 and udp 1434 before last friday,
so we didn't get much of a hit from the latest incident.

We don't have any plans to unblock those ports - anyone who needs
sql access to the internet can ask for their specific system to
be unblocked, but I see no need to expose sql servers on campus
to the internet.  There are a few who needed internet access to their
sql servers, and they know the risks of doing that and are diligent
in keeping their systems up to date on patches.
