    Sasser worm begins to spread

    A worm, dubbed Sasser by antivirus firms, was spreading slowly throughout the Internet on Saturday, taking advantage of a vulnerability in unpatched Windows systems to infect new hosts.

    The Sasser worm began spreading Friday night and seems to be moving at a pace far slower than previous worms such as MSBlast and Code Red, said Alfred Huger, senior director of security firm Symantec's response team.

    "It is a slow burn," he said. "It is picking up speed, but right now we aren't seeing to much activity."
