    Windows Update struggling to remain available

    Microsoft's Windows Update web site has been experiencing slow response times in the wake of yesterday's release of critical security updates. A browser request through Internet Explorer eventually raises the site after an extended wait, and in some cases it is possible to successfully download and install updates over a broadband connection.

    Dynamically updating performance charts for Windows Update are available here.

    The service is struggling for availability at a crucial moment of need for Windows users. Microsoft yesterday released four security updates, including three critical patches that Microsoft urged customers to install immediately. They include a patch for an SSL vulnerability that leaves Windows 2000 and NT4 SSL sites open to remote compromise. The current sluggish performance of Windows Update is a particular challenge for Windows users ondial-up Internet connections, as the Windows XP download is 3 megabytes.

    The DNS for windowsupdate.microsoft.com is managed by Savvis Communications, which runs the former Digital Island content distribution network (CDN) it acquired from Cable & Wireless earlier this year. CDNs help manage Internet traffic (including DDoS attacks) by using large, geographically distributed networks of servers to move files closer to the end user.

    Microsoft used a CDN service from Akamai to keep its web site online last August, when the Blaster worm programmed machines to launch a DDoS on the Windows Update site. Microsoft's strategy drew considerable attention, as the front page of the www.microsoft.com site was served by Linux machines on Akamai's network. Savvis is using Windows Server 2003 to manage the Windows Update traffic.
    Shut that cuntís mouth or Iíll come over there and fuckstart her head.
