PC World published this last month but we just noticed the article now: there's a pretty good feature story on case Sasser in the November issue.

This article, written by a former intelligence officer Dan Verton, goes all the way to explain how exactly the LSASS hole was found, what Microsoft was doing to patch it and how the exploit code which ended up to the Sasser worm was generated.

There's also a nice timeline in the article.
