It seems that this worm do not have the high impact on the network like blaster or nachi. But seems the new virant have much more high impact now.
From all the worm outbreak, we can tell since human naturaly are lazy, it wont solve the problem if you ask people to patch the system. A lot of solution has come out, like IDS,IPS, HIDS and buffer overrun prevetion tool, but it still wont solve the problem if MS still dominate the OS world.
One possibility is to make the OS variant, with randomize library, ramdomize DLL name etc. :-(
