[unisog] New (No kidding) RPC Vulnerability

A downstream campus shut off the dorm ports on the first day back at school last month, then gave students a choice:

A. They could have a port once they'd been certified as patched to current stable and virus-free by IT staff, or
B. Users with a non-Microsoft operating system were given a number to call for immediate access. 

Words cannot express my personal and professional gratitude. :)

I was just saying we should set up a table in the Atrium and give every 
windows user a choice of CDROMs:

Pick from box A and get all the current windows patches.

Pick from box B and get a localized Red Hat Linux installation.

If you pick from A, come again next week.
