Security experts the world over, including the Department of Homeland Security's United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) division, are warning that the exploit, which can cause Denial of Service (DOS) attacks, could easily be turned into a worm, much like the MSBlast worm of 2003.

Such a worm could wreak havoc on the public Internet, causing outages all over the web.

It is HIGHLY recommended, therefore, that ALL WINDOWS USERS patch their systems immediately -- the link to Microsoft's web site for the patch is http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=3646728.
