Wormy bots exploiting Windows Server flaw

"Network administrators noticed an increase this week in scans for Windows
computers vulnerable to the Windows Server service flaw fixed by Microsoft
last month.

 The scans are due, at least in part, to a variant of the SDBot
program--also known as rBot and Randex--that has been modified to use the
Microsoft flaw and set to spread automatically. It took less than a week
for underground programmers to modify their bot software to take advantage
of the latest Windows flaw, described in security bulletin MS06-040."
