> This new bug, while different from the one discovered and reported in
> Internet Information Server about ten days ago, causes the same kind of
> denial of service attack: it locks up a Web server so nobody else can get
> onto it.
> Yesterday, users throughout the Net reported problems to CNET getting into
> the Microsoft Web site. Microsoft has been in the process of upgrading its
> servers and has warned users to expect difficulty in hitting the site. But
> yesterday's problems were caused by a denial of service attack in which
> phony TCP/IP packets are sent to the Web server, according to Mike Nash, a
> Microsoft spokesman.
> Nash said the company was informed about the problem via email late Sunday
> night and was under attack Monday morning. He added Microsoft would post a
> patch by 12 p.m. PT today. Anyone serving up Web pages off Windows 95, NT
> Workstation, and NT Server is vulnerable to the attack and should download
> the patch, Nash noted.

      If Microsoft is the answer this must have been a VERY silly question.
