These were taken offline early Saturday morning, but the worm continued to have a severe impact on our network connections.
This worm affects MS-SQL Server and Components of it installed by other applications such as HP Openview, MS-Visual Studio, etc... If you're not sure about your system being vulnerable do the following:
As of January 2003, TRIUMF has two connections, one via BCNet to CA*Net, ESnet, CERN etc., and another via UBC to everything else, including Telus ADSL and Shaw cable. At the time of writing (15:21 Saturday Jan 25 2003), the CA*net connection is up but the UBC one is not.
The TRIUMF modem pool (56k dialup) is unaffected.
