Some anti-virus expert are expecting a possible important DoS attack tomorrow on none other but Microsoft itself. This information was just released and without any doubt will spread over the net fast during the night.
Around the same time, Microsoft released a critical update to Internet Explorer 6 and, while nothing has been 100% confirmed yet, I urge everyone to get the update, check your anti-virus and to spread the news.
According the information available, if such an attack would happen, there could be important connection problems a bit everywhere.
As you know, we have a patch coming out this morning. IF (If being important factor here) such attack should happen, it should not delay the patching procedure itself, but it may slowdown the patch download rate a LOT.
We will keep you informed tomorrow as soon as more information is available. In the meanwhile, spread the news.
