Microsoft has put up the advance bulletin for next week's updates.  There are 7 total updates, with 2 or more of them being labeled as critical (1 for Windows Media Player, 1+ for Windows itself).  Also, they'll be releasing an update of their Malicious Software Removal Tool.  Looks like it will be an eventful Black Tuesday.

There are some pretty neat animations up at CAIDA that show the rate of new infections of BlackWorm/Nyxem/Lots of Other names.  Essentially it shows the world-wide spread of the virus as it progressed (along with a pretty detailed analysis of the worm as a whole).  It's a good read with nods to Swa and Lorna for their contributions.
