You've heard about that internet

You've heard about that internet worm that slowed traffic over the weekend? You may know that it was made possible by a well-publicized (and old) hole in Microsoft's SQL Server software. You may also have heard of Microsoft's year-old "trustworthy computing" initiative. Well, it turns out that Microsoft's OWN COMPUTERS were hit by the worm over the weekend because THEY FAILED TO FOLLOW THEIR OWN ADVICE and install security patches for their own products. [nyt]
