THey still have http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com which supplys updates. Damn, if I coded the blaster worm I would have got it to hit microsoft.com ;-) Haha. Just kidding.
$3.00 since it will work atthe end of the year once the DoS stops. ;-)

Think they'll ever catch who coded the worm? After a whilie i wanna get a copy of it just to see how it was writtin....with everyone copying it and makin dupes of it and some small changes it just sounds interesting gettin a copy and lookin at whats causing all this havoc. Oh well...without holes and worms and these virus's whats the point of security? Wonder how many other copies of this worm is gonnna come out. I place my bid at $5.50.
