BlackWorm: 2 million infected? ISP notifications.

2 million hits:
The counter is now at 2 million. Check out Sunbelt’s blog on this:
From past experience the 2 million hits probably mean a little over a
million users infected.
In cooperation with many (US-CERT, FBI, SANS ISC, many in the industry,
etc.) and with special thanks to:
Dr. Johannes Ullrich (SANS ISC) and Prof. Randal Vaughn (Randy —
Baylor.edu), an attempt to contact all the ISP’s who have infected users
has been made.
A new list of IP’s that hit the (still secret) counter address is being
compiled, so we can make another run of ISP notifications.
The reporting emails are sent from Baylor.edu and contain a URL to the
SANS ISC with a time-limited specially crafted URL for the respective
ISP authorities to get their infected users’ information from.
I'll update here when possible if there is anything to update.
