Yes, 'tis a sad day for Linux. Although not the first worm for Linux, it is becoming painfully apparent that viruses for Linux are becoming more widespread, and will without question become a problem :(

    So far, the only true virus for Linux has been one called "bliss" ... due to the concept of users, only the most incompetent will do any real damage (running as root, maybe? :o)

    The rest of these "viruses" all depend on holes in the system, and are aptly named "worms."
