Its not the first of its kind, CodeGreen was created to automtically protect systems against the CodeRed virus and the Cheese worm fixed the Lion worm on Linux recently.

The difference with Welchia is that it picks machines at random to try and patch like a true virus. This is different to the approach of CodeGreen which would only attack a system if it had been attacked by that system as a result of a CodeRed infection (hope that makes sense).

Still not good news but if you don't subscribe to the MS security bulletins or update your OS as soon as updates are released then you're asking for trouble in my opinion.

But sometimes the updates are more hassle than they are worth - there are updates coming out daily and everytime an update comes out you may not necessarily have to apply it because for example your firewall covers a security issue or whatever, but with some other updates before you can apply them (Like said by someone earlier on this thread) they have to go to the development team for them to scrutinise and to ascertain whether there will be any impact on the applications your company is running - Then you find your applying a patch for a patch - An example being applying a IE patch that could hamper users ability using a citrix web client - applying the patch causes connectivity/authentication issues.
