Worm Affects SQL Servers

(Jan 25, 2003) Bitstop’s SQL servers were affected by this exploit. We are sharing this info to help others avoid our fate. Read more from INQ7….

Microsoft already had the patch to prevent this problem, but Bitstop’s Sys Admin was not prompt enough in updating the SQL Servers. (no more vale for that guy!!!)

Francis V blocked off UDP port 1434, which was the source of the infections. Sysadmins elsewhere are urged to do the same.

Those of you that wish to update your SQL to service pack3 can download sql2ksp3.exe from our ftp site, or from infocom network.
