New virus: Download.Ject

Major new virus sweeping through last night and this morning, designated Download.Ject. It appears to spread via unpatched IIS 5.0 servers (the specific vulnerability may be MS04-011) and could cause problems for clients who don’t have the most recent Internet Explorer patches. Make sure you visit Windows Update and install all available critical patches. More news as it comes…


Seattle Times: Bill Gates could join the ranks of bloggers. Interesting, though the article actually says that Mary Jo Foley of MicrosoftWatch says that Bill will start his own blog “real soon now” and Microsoft spokespeople say he would “love to do his own blog at some point in the future, time permitting.” I was going to make an Eric Rudder joke here (Eric is notorious for only updating his blog every couple of months), but the article actually beat me to it. Another tongue in cheek prediction: being linked by Bill will become the holy grail of blogging at Microsoft and will somewhat diminish the thrill of getting linked by Scoble.
