That list of IP addresses is from Tuesday.  I know of a number of machines
that were compromised that were not on that list.  I can only imagine what
the number has climbed to since Tuesday.

......The quite reliable hacker tracker attrition.org is reporting that

Quite.  However, since this is NANOG you missed the most interesting parts:

"Attrition has posted the IPs of all the boxes known to have been hit..."

"What's ironic here is that the worm exploits two separate holes which were 
reported and patched ages ago. Call it proof-of-concept that sysadmins 
spend an awful lot of time on activities other than absorbing security 
bulletins."
