I can tell you the names of about 100 different programmers who use push 
ascii in their expoits. This is common exploit code just like using "i" as 
the loop variable in C/C++.

>2.	It uses hard-coded import addresses (listed below) as SQL Slammer.

I can tell you the names of about 100 different programmers who use 
hardcoded addresses in their expoits. This is common exploit code just like 
using "i" as the loop variable in C/C++.

Definitely a big NO.
