Uhm, if his boss is that way to an admin that's asked to secure a box/set of
computers I personally wouldn't work there. There is too much on my head
then.

Your boss should respect what you say and what you know and allow you to do
your job instead of wanting to do it himself.

Anyhow, I personally don't want a DCOM For nix... Since I know of a LOT of
boxes that haven't been patched yet. There is really no need for a 'box and
shipped' version of the vuln. There is a whitepaper out... Go read it and
figure it out yourself.

Moo~
