Denial of Service Attack

It seems that some virus/worm is making its way through the net. Access to anything on the internet has been sporadic for the last few hours. My firewall log contains lots of blocked UDP accesses on port 1434. Looking at Matrix NetSystems graphs, it seems that packet loss increased a lot and reachability was reduced somewhere around midnight to 1:00am. I hear it might be an exploit of a MS SQL server vulnerability.

UPDATE: The news story in the media and the virus alert from Network Associates.
