Best practices meets the real world!

Here's a fairly good article on the Blaster worm that talks about why these thins actually work: Warnings did little to stop latest computer outbreak. Some of my favorite quotes are: "Security experts say patches often stay on "to do" lists until outbreaks occur." and my favorite one:

"'You're looking at 70 new vulnerabilities every week,' said Sharon Ruckman, senior director at the research lab for anti-virus vendor Symantec Corp. 'It's more than a full-time job trying to make sure you are up to date.' Microsoft spokesman Sean Sundwall acknowledged that the blame does not really lie with customers. 'Ultimately, it's a flaw in our software,' he said."
