This new development could impact W/2000 users and it's definitely in the "Patch Now" column.

MS06-070: New network wormable exploit could impact W/2000 PCs
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2060481,00.asp

The Milw0rm exploit, released by a hacker called "cocoruder," takes aim at the high-severity bug covered in the MS06-070 bulletin and can be used to launch a network worm against unpatched Windows 2000 systems. Amol Sarwate, manager of the vulnerability research lab at Qualys, in Redwood Shores, Calif., is strongly urging businesses running Windows 2000 to test and deploy the MS06-070 patch because of the ease in which a hacker could launch an exploit.
