Some universities such as Vanderbilt University are automatically
shutting down network ports when they detected signature worm traffic.
Almost 25% of the students' computers were detected as infected when they
connected to the university network.
How many ISPs disconnect infected computers from the network? Do you
leave them connected because they are paying customers, and how else
could they download the patch from microsoft?
