I have a question/statement on this issue.

I've been setting up database driven web sites and due to the issuses with the SA user name and password, i have create unique logins with passwords.

I suppose i better add that i have been using DSN-less connnection, i haven't had any problems using this method.

The article says the worm is easy to stop, but never mentions how one might accomplish this feat.

Is the solution to re-set the sa password to something other than blank? Does this work after infection?

resetting the pwd will prevent future infection. Not sure about later, but it should. My guess is the worm keeps attaching via sa.
Your description of the web sites sounds fine.
