I have recently acquired a new customer who had a new version (dropped a new
exe file - one that hasn't been seen before they were infected - in the
system32 sub-directory) the sdbot worm blow through every machine on their
network. The worm is definitely one of the sdbot.worm.gen variants. And,

infected. The I.T. People at this firm failed to patch, or even have a plan
to patch the Windows OS.

Thanks for your advice and time to think about this.
