    Update Alert to sql worm

    I was extremely suprised to read that a lot of home users MAY be vunerable to this worm, when we all assumed it was a corporate issue.

    http://grc.com/worms/25-01-03.htm

    it says that several microsoft home use programs are vunerable including some games WHERE YOU ACT AS A SERVER for online use. they have the sql2000 server inbuilt or the MSDE

    These include :
    office 2000/XP
    Microsoft's Age of Mythology
    amongst others

    a full list is posted here for convenience

    Don't panic though, even if you have the program installed, if you are not using it as a server you will be OK

    The worm does no real damage, it justs slows everything down.. similar to a DoS attack.
