Security Patch

Then there’s this non-war story (?) from the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel:

A new computer “worm” that exploits Microsoft’s popular Windows operating system forced aerospace giant Lockheed Martin to shut down parts of its nationwide computer network this week, officials say.

The worm follows the so-called “Blaster” or “LoveSan” worm that infected hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide last week.

For Lockheed Martin, the new worm caused the most trouble in Valley Forge, Pa., and across the Denver area, where it infected 1,200 company computers.


Not just Denver, but their Colorado Springs Mission Systems facility, too. While it was nice to have Melissa home an hour early yesterday, it’s not exactly comforting to know that a major defense contractor shut down for an afternoon because of a worm.
