    "Personal and corporate firewalls typically block traffic on port 135, protecting those machines from exploitation."

    Since I'm running a router and BlackIce, I'm safe. :D I'd advise everybody to have a hardware firewall at least. Since I'm on cable and I got BlackIce for free, I have both hardware and software protection.

    I've been running BlackIce for a month now, and it appears to be overprotection - hasn't blocked any intruders yet.

    I wish that all computer OS's came with rock solid firewall and intrusiuon detection capabilities built in: they dont. Whether you run MS, LINUX, UNIX variants etc you still need firewall/intrusion detection software on your public facing networks.

    So, while this is yet another minor embarassment for MS it really does not affect customers that have these things in place.
