    Might be a good idea to double check your spam account (hotmail) and make sure you don't have any mission critical info there. As someone said, security to MS means to have FINANCIAL security. :)

    A customer of mine uses Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration server as their companies Firewall and external router (a PC Win2000 server with 2 nics and MS ISA installed). I tried to explain to them a real Cisco type firewall/router might be a better choice than a MS based solution. I guess they will need to be attacked to learn their lesson.
