I am contracted to a HUGE pharmaceutical company and we support the field clients. I was the first in my company to notice the threat, and I was able to protect our servers, but the field clients got slammed. It was so bad that clients who normally VPN into the network were denied access, and all of the field clients ( almost 9,000) needed to be sent CDs with the MS patch, and updated McAfee dat files. This was a major cost to the company, and the lack of network connectivity really hurt business.

Now that was bad, but then the actual network was put out of commision by the Nachi virus. That literally crashed tons of servers worldwide for the company I am contracted to.

Thanx to Retina, the security scanner from eeye.com, I applied the patch for the RPC/DCOM-exploit 2-3 weeks before MSBlast hit the Internet. After that I disabled DCOM on my system.

Security scanners are very helpful, but I do recommend that everyone who uses a Windows-based system to keep a close eye at Microsofts's Security pages.

I've been lucky, myself and not been hit with it.

I am deluged with a particular mail Spam that is carrying a virus attachment with it daily (about 200 a day). My Spam blocker is dealing with it, but it is an irritant.
Thanks,

Tom
