Yeah we talked about it early this morning on the #nblug channel
<greenfly> <stix> and me before Kyle got the bright idea of posting it to
the nblug talk list.

I wanted to see someting more solid in the discussion before sending
anything out, but at the very least, if there is no exploit in the wild,
people will know about the new patched version.

So, after reading up on the security focus discussions, the
"Full-Disclosure" lists on netsys.com, and the various /. posts, I am
still wondering about the facts.

Of course, I did upgrade to the new version early this morning, but am
still a bit in the dark about the aleged worm, and the aleged exploit.
