    Isn't this the one that won't touch a box that has SP2 (or 2k3 server) as it doesn't have a correct login?

    I doubt they get a pat on the back or a raise. :p Though the patch had only been out 3-4 days before the first worm/virus. I'm sure this patch was running on some "test" servers for many admins who are now very upset. :(
