    New Windows Worm

    Internet Storm Center's Diary reported today: Due to a number of very well working Windows exploits for this weeks patch set, and the zero-day Veritas exploit, we decided to turn the Infocon to yellow. The Internet Threat Level meters are at level 2/4 because of Windows Plug and Play vulnerability's several exploit codes too
    There's also a worm floating about (mentioned in the diary) that uses the new vulnerabilities to download some nasty trojans and spread itself around. The worm is called Zotob.A.
