So Is The Worm Dead?

Wow, security have really changed, if folks from Wormblog seriously proclaim that they "spent some time wondering if Wormblog was even still needed", since no major worms have materialized in recent months?

They further say "it seems like worm detection systems are no longer as high pressure as they were in the past." Well, suspiciously many of the folks (like this or that) who used to sell the "anti-worm gear" have switched to NAC...

So, is Bot a new Worm, aka the '"Scourge of the Century" of the Day' (note embedded quites :-))? :-)
