Virus triggers suit against Microsoft

paleo writes "A Korean civic group plans to file a lawsuit against Microsoft Corp. over the computer worm attack that crippled the nation's Internet activity last month.

The People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD) blamed the Microsoft SQL servers' vulnerability to the worm, called "slammer," for the shutdown of Internet networks here Jan. 25. It claimed that Microsoft should have done more to protect its customers from a threat it was conscious of."
