Waiting for the Worms

Posted: 2009/04/01 in Information Security, Security Disclosures, Security News, Software News

As anyone who have heard any news media source lately may already know. Today is April Fool’s Day, and also “worm” day. For those that are unfamiliar the worms first started back in 1988 and was released by accident (so the story goes) by a researcher named Robert Morris. Today this has evolved quite a bit but the overall concept is still the same, create some malicious code that can move freely to any exploitable system it can talk to. While the build up for the today’s worm may have been part hype and part prior preparation, it is still a real reminder of how vulnerable our technology is still. For today’s threat make sure you are patched and safe.
