Windows 2000 Worm vulnerability

Apparently, there is an unpatched vulnerability in Windows 2000 that could open the door for a network worm. The details have not been released to give Microsoft time to deal with a patch. (Microsoft is drawing down support commitments to 2000, releasing a batch of updates just before their timeline to start phasing out support.)

Of course, the details have not been released but it’s suspected that it won’t be long until the bad guys figure out what it is and target it. (I mean after all, if one security researcher can discover it I’m sure others can.) All I can tell from the post so far is that it’s related to a core component of windows, and must be remotely exploitable. Time to verify your Windows 2000 systems are well firewalled I suppose.
