  3. Is that for the hole that's been there for six years?

    All this is about is someone figured out how to use ADODB and the IIS
    servers that were attacked were not secured properly as some don't know
    how to secure the server and IIS properly. A database ADODB object should
    have never been able to be instantiated like that on a Web server.

    Not every IIS server was attacked by this exploit.

    Secondly, MS has got to separate MS business solution technology from the
    home user environment. MS must start to make segregation between
    workstation O/S for business and home usage.

    Pretty much all it seems to do is change a few registry values. Spybot
    yapped about it and I hit "accept".
