    This illustrates just how vulnerable unpatched PC's are. With no user intervention whatsover, an insufficiently protected machine was hacked in just a few minutes.

    For those of you with Windows XP, upgrade to Service Pack 2 - you will be a lot better protected. And if you don't have a firewall installed, now is the time to get one.
