  1. Two penetration testing companies, Immunity and Core Security Technologies, have already created and released "reliable exploits" for the flaw, which was deemed wormable on all Windows versions, including Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1.

    Windows users apply MS06-040 patch.

    Dave Aitel, a researcher at Immunity, said his exploits are capable of launching attacks against firewall-protected Windows XP SP2. "A worm is coming. This bug is just too easy to exploit," Aitel said in an interview with eWEEK.
