Zotob might attack Windows XP

I came across this InformationWeek article “Symantec: Zotob May Be Modified To Attack Windows XP” today. Basically, Symantec recommends you apply this patch. It only takes 2 minutes (on a Windows XP machine). Better safe than sorry! Ooh, since the patch has to do with Plug and Play, maybe you should just disable it with Steve Gibson’s UnPlug n’ Pray! Now that just takes seconds.
