So if I’ve got a firewall why is everyone freaking out?  Because all it takes is someone getting on their machine and then vpning inside the office to nail you.  All of us in a SBS network have firewalls on boxes and should have them on our workstations but we have file and printer sharing open.


Now this isn’t as bad as the MSblaster days when Win2k had no firewalls, so we’re smarter than that and have a bit of time, but I’d be putting this on priority.


Brianna and Yoda both patched with no issues.  So far not hearing any buzz about dead bodies on the folks that have patched already.
