Two machines in my office were booted from the network yesterday when they were found to be infected with MSBlast. The worm itself is not malicious (yet), but when your machine is banned, you can't get much work done. That worm yesterday cost me, my office mate, and many others time and money, and none of us did anything except run Windows. Look ma, no attachements!

I actually patched my Win2k machine before this worm could knock on its door ("hey! come on in!"). The other two Winblows machines were not so lucky.

My Mac and our Linux box had 0% downtime yesterday.
