Subject: RE: Probable new MS DCOM RPC worm for Windo
 ws

I would think a better way of determining if a patch is actually
installed on a system is by examining the files on the system rather
than to depend upon symptoms (scanners) or installation logs (registry
entries).

If the add/remove software control panel, registry, or
msi say the machine is patched but the files aren't
there, an installation problem occurred.

If the scanners say the machine is not patched but the
files are there then either the patch is ineffective in
that machine's particular configuration (PATH?) or the
scanner is generating a false positive.
