Microsoft Corp., still scrambling to help customers glue their systems back together following the SQL Server Slammer worm, on Friday will put out a new version of tools designed to help users figure out whether they're at risk. In addition, the company plans to put out a third version sometime next week.
There are three tools now posted on Microsoft's site: SQL Scan, SQL Check and SQL Critical Update.
