The full story is
(link dead, sorry)
but the short version is this: MSBLAST caused Microsoft to start
using Akamai services for Windows Update. That's fine (though it
had to have been politically tough because Akamai runs on Linux
servers), but Akaima also hosts many pop-up ad vendors, so many
people have Akaima ip's blocked to avoid Pop-Up ads. That, of course, has the
unintended affect of stopping Windows Update for those people.
