Ready, set, patch

Another month, another patch session from Microsoft.

IT administrators now face a race to patch before someone reengineers one of the patches and sends out a virus to exploit it. It's only taking days now but if you're running a 10,000 client system that's not enough time.

Even if the hackers take a month or so there'll still be a vast pool of users out there who haven't updated their systems.

The problem is going to get worse too. When Cisco and others finally build their much touted intelligent network, unpatched PCs are going to have problems getting online, virus or not.
