    Although the numbers are on the order of 50x for sources
    and 500x to 1000x for targets compared to last November,
    it appears the general trend is now downward (sources)

    Perhaps they are done fighting over the existing unpatched
    systems to be had ??

    Anyone that has not installed the December patch

    was possibly toasted some time ago if their WINS services had
    open exposure.
