Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

People have long being inspired to song through love, passion or (as the Reg Anthem competition found out) frustration with Microsoft Windows.

Now a virus outbreak has sparked musical creativity. This is the ditty we hear is being sung around the tech support desks at anti-virus vendor Sophos...

To the tune of The Lion Sleeps Tonight

{chorus}
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day.

[bloke in background]
Ooooh-ooooh, oooh-ee-oo-ay a Nimda day ...

In the networks, the NT networks,
The virus spreads tonight.
In the networks, the busy networks,
The virus leaps tonight.

A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day.

Near the server, infected server,
The virus pings tonight.
Near the server, infected server,
The virus pings tonight.

A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day.

TFTP, TFTP,
What is going on?
TFTP, TFTP,
/What/ is going on !?

A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day,
A Nimda Day, a Nimda Day.
