   [Story on cracking M$ web server snipped]
       I'm not at all surprised.  It seems that cracking/crashing NT
  servers is becoming something of a hobby for many.  The only relief I
  see for those running NT is that it's become so damn easy to crack that
  most hackers have since become bored with it and have since moved on to
  something offering a bit more of a challenge.
