If you are running Windows and keep getting disconnected

... then the chances are good that you have been hit by a worm exploiting this vulnerability.

It affects
  • Microsoft Windows NT® 4.0
  • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Services Edition
  • Microsoft Windows 2000
  • Microsoft Windows XP
  • Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003

and the link to the MS information is here (and if that one makes no sense, you may want to read the slightly less technical version here).

A public service announcement.

Edit: See also kneeshooter's comment here for a way of stopping the auto-shutdown (at least for WinXP)
