UPS or tape backup software?

by robo_dev In reply to Windows server 2000 shotd ...

some tape backup software can be configured to shut-down after backup completes.

Similarly, UPS software can lose communication with UPS, and sometimes the result is to shutdown the server.

There is at least one computer worm that does this....I think you are correct to suspect that some variant of the sasser worm is to blame.
