More news on the IIS exploit After acknowledging the problem last week, Micro$oft is now saying that the backdoor in IIS... is a flaw. M$ Technet seems to have a fix for this problem, delete the offending file! So, if systems are your bag, my advice is to start researching security if you are running M$ internet server products (SQL 7, Exchange, IIS, Index Server, etc.).

Even ESR jumped the gun on this one... the flaw has apparently turned not to be what everyone originally thought it was.

Anyone care to comment on whether the web makes it possible to report on things *too quickly*?

When it comes to security, better safe than sorry.
