Idiots! Dolts! Speech-impaired Piscines*!

(*Dumb Basses)

Who am I talking about? See this story (yeh, it's all over the place).

Worm strikes down Windows 2000 systems
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A fast-moving computer worm Tuesday attacked computer systems using Microsoft operating systems, shutting down computers in the United States, Germany and Asia.

Among those hit were offices on Capitol Hill, which is in the midst of August recess, and media organizations, including CNN, ABC and The New York Times. The Caterpillar Co. in Peoria, Illinois, reportedly also had problems...

Idiots. Dolts. Doofuses, one and all. I mean, what's so hard about hitting "patch Tuesday"? The vulnerability this worm depends on was patched by all non-brain-dead Win2K users before this thing was ever seen "in the wild." CNN, ABC, NYT and "offices on Capitol Hill" are to be expected to have idiots for IT guys, though. But Caterpillar? Gee, how can they stay in business if their IT department's that incompetent?

Anyone in IT who, after years and years of "shrink-wrap betaware" from Microsoft and almost weekly discoveries of vulnerabilities in their products, does NOT take every opportunity to review and patch the MS products their company uses should be fired. With "extreme prejudice". Removed from the gene pool as too stupid to reproduce.

Dumb. Simply too dumb to be allowed to pollute the gene pool...

A small number of computers in an administrative office at San Francisco International Airport also crashed, but they were not essential to the airport's operation, spokesman Mike McCarron said._*_

"Crashed"—not a word you'd want to hear associated with ANY airport's systems, is it?
