Ok, I demand that you mass produce whatever crystal-ball appliance you
are using for mass consumption pronto. Well, we're down to less than 70
machines that are identified as being vulnerable. Has anyone had any
instances of the "E" variant of Sasser rear its ugly head on them??

	I may have stumbled across why we missed the sasser worm: It
I blocked ports 1025, 2745 3137 and 6129 at the border unless they were 
established from inside. Since I don't remember doing this, it was well
the sasser scare :-). That may or may not have made the difference here
wouldn't affect internal infections though).
