Slammer worm is back!

 
 

Researchers have said that after 13 years the SQL slammer is back and has resumed its rage. This was a massive menace back in the day, it set a record after it infected 75,000 servers in 10 minutes. This threat is a very old one it exploits a flaw within Microsoft SQL server.

Security researchers at Check Point noticed the attacks resume in early December last year, they also said that the machines most affected and targeted were in the US. It has been targeted at a large variety of countries but 26 % are in the US.
