Nothing off-topic about it John.  This raw and weeping security breech is
essentially a free entry into the AS/400 from any PC with Client Access and
a connection to the internet.  How this can be treated in so trivial a
fashion by network people has me bug-eyed with disbelief.

The theory that scares me most is the theory that MS is intentionally
destroying tcp/ip, to be replaced with tcp/ms as a more secure solution.
This is of course based upon the strange idea that MS has made all of the
key advances in computer solutions so far, so who else but MS could properly
offer a secure tcp?
