MICROSOFT’S UNLUCKY NUMBER?It appears that, for Microsoft, the number 39 is unusuallyunlucky – at least when it comes to security advisories.Here are three examples of ‘the curse of 39’ in action:• MS02-039 – exploited by Slammer• MS03-039 – exploited by Blaster• MS05-039 – exploited by ZotobEach of these worms caused a significant outbreak. In allcases, not only did they cause mass infection very rapidly,but they also had a significant impact on the networks ofcompanies they had infected, in some cases to the point ofexhausting all available bandwidth. So, let us now look atthe latest ‘curse-of-39’ worm and see how it fared.Borrowed From VirusBtn Magazine Issue 10/2005Article "Zo-to-Business"---------------------------------------------------btw any1 noticed india is curesed with "26"on 26 mumbai floods happenedon 26 Bhuj Earth quakeon 26 Tsunamion 26 .....some other uninteresting crap happened?
