MS SQL WORM IS DESTROYING INTERNET BLOCK PORT 1434! Jan 25 2003 07:11AM

I'm getting massive packet loss to various points on the globe.
I am seeing a lot of these in my tcpdump output on each
host.

02:06:31.017088 150.140.142.17.3047 > 24.193.37.212.ms-sql-m: udp 376
02:06:31.017244 24.193.37.212 > 150.140.142.17: icmp: 24.193.37.212 udp port ms-sql-m unreachable [tos 0xc0

It looks like there's a worm affecting MS SQL Server which is
pingflooding addresses at some random sequence.

All admins with access to routers should block port 1434 (ms-sql-m)!

Everyone running MS SQL Server shut it the hell down or make
sure it can't access the internet proper!

I make no guarantees that this information is correct, test it
out for yourself!
