Ingeval iemand hierdie waarskuwing gemis het, plak ek dit hier. Dit is 'n Patch wat MS alreeds op 23/10/08 beskikbaar gestel het.
Based on scans of several hundred thousand customer-owned Windows PCs, Qualys concluded that about 30 percent of the machines have not yet been patched with the "out of cycle" fix Microsoft provided on October 23 as security update MS08-067.
"The unpatched numbers went down significantly around the 30-day mark," said Wolfgang Kandek, Qualys' chief technology officer, "when less than 50 percent were unpatched. After that, it went down a little slower. As of yesterday, 30 percent of the machines are unpatched."
With nearly a third of all Windows systems still vulnerable, it's no surprise that the 'Downadup' worm has been able to score such a success, Kandek said. "These slow [corporate] patch cycles are simply not acceptable," he said. "They lead directly to these high infection rates."
