Quick Question to all.

I would like to identify the SOURCE computer where the "downadup.a" worm variant originated a given network which has 
been infected.

Minimal thinking tells me that I should search for the computer that's running an HTTP server between ports [1024 and 
10000] - the result may be the source.

Anyone else have better ideas to determine the source computer on a network from which conficker originated?
