As users of Microsoft software, .NET types need to be aware of the latest security threats.

The newest entrant is Sasser, which delivers a similiar payload to that of the Blaster worm. It’s reportedly already brought down some of the Australian rail network, as well as restarting thousands of Microsoft machines worldwide.

Make sure you’re patched as soon as possible, as once you’re hit, your computer can restart at any time.
