Code Red Nails Microsoft

Microsoft has confirmed that their Hotmail servers were hit by Code Red. I think I speak for everyone in the whole world when I say HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Doesn't it say something when the company that makes the software doesn't patch their own servers running that software? Should anybody trust .NET to keep our data safe and secure? Hello?!? MS proves time and time again that they are utterly incapable of keeping servers running and secure for relatively mundane things like Hotmail and instant messaging. How will they possibly do it right with .NET? The answer: they won't and it will be .NET users who take it in the shorts. Thanks Slashdot.

J.t.Qbe comments: And let's not miss the irony here: just a short while ago Microsoft made a big deal about the fact that it had (allegedly) migrated all of Hotmail to Win2K, from its previous FreeBSD-based servers--where Code Red wouldn't have touched it at all! I'm with you, A.T.: HAHAHAHAHA!
