    A majority of the worms (even SQLsnake) that have been going around
    lately take advantage of cscript and wscript.  What ramifications would
    be felt on vanilla installs of common services (MS SQL, Exchange, IIS,
    etc.) if these two files were moved or deleted?  It seems like a fairly
    easy way to help mitigate the 'success' of Internet worms.  Any
