Internet Security Systems' Neel Mehta, agreed that there were similarities between the PnP bug exploited by Zotob and MS05-051. "The scope of the affected platform is exactly the same and these services are run by default on Windows 2000," said Mehta. "In terms of ease of exploitation, they're not incredibly difficult to exploit, but they're not as easy as the Plug and Play vulnerability."
