What I'm getting at, is for someone to create another exploit that creates
the C:\notworm file in infected machines and does something to
notify whoever is in charge of a particular box (even something as simple
as placing you_are_hacked.txt and a link to the patch on the desktop could
be beneficial). Even better, an exploit to patch a machine (through
removing the .ida and .idq extensions) would prevent the inevitable wave
of post-attacks (both from this worm and future attacks).

The only problem I forsee with that course of action is that for a while,
this worm may clog the networks up just as badly as Code Red.
