Ian Bell writes: "A new unnamed worm has been released and, once again, Microsoft software is the target. More specifically, this new worm targets Microsoft SQL servers with no administrator passwords set. Once the server is infected, it logs onto Internet Relay Chat (IRC) servers and is ready to receive commands and act accordingly. Although this can be a fairly malicious worm, it is very unlikely to infect many servers due to the fact that majority of Microsoft SQL servers have administrator passwords."
