US-CERT is aware of active exploitation of a vulnerability in Windows Server 2003 Operating System Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0. Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to take control of an affected system.

It pains me to think that people are still using these outdated OS's especially governments.

There are countries around the world that are technologically behind countries like the US, Canada, The UK, etc.  Years behind.  Although in the world population the number of servers running Server 2k3 and IIS 6.0 are few.  Still, it's worth getting the word out.

V/r,
