Update: Spida worm infects MS SQL servers

ISS X-Force reports that a worm is spreading via Microsoft SQL servers. The Spida worm is responsible for large amounts of Internet traffic as well as millions of TCP/IP probes. This worm attempts to locate and login to MS/SQL servers with the "sa" account and a blank password. "Once a vulnerable computer is found, the worm will infect that target, send its configuration and password information to an external host, and begin scanning for new targets."
