whatever the problems with XP, the majority of zotob hits here have been on 
faculty/staff systems not student systems. We're in the middle of student 
checkin and most of the students have XP SP2 systems. They also have to run a 
VTNET CD before they connect to our net. That CD makes sure the FW is up, auto 
updates are set and the latest AV software is installed. We're hoping our 
security sessions during freshman orientation have taken hold. They appear to 
have done so last year.

We're using the York U scanner and Nessus plugins to sweep our nets hourly.

Of course, we have to deal with vendor software that enables exceptions for 
the FW.....
