What's more disturbing is that this worm has established a new record
for Microsoft worms . Blaster was the fastest worm (25 days since
the patch was published to the worm), this one has been even faster
(17 days for the first variant since the patch was published to the
worm). Of course, I'm not considering the fact that this issue was
known, at least to eEye and Microsoft, for over 5 months.
 Approaching the record of worms in other OS, which, I believe, is
held by Scalper (10 days from patch to worm). But hey, they could
browse the source changes for that one.
