Before it starts scanning, the worm will setup a random admin
password on the system (and it emails the new password to the
worm 'writer'). So there is no easy way to fix it. Also: doing
so would be illegal without consent from the owner.

The number of sources is getting smaller (down from 5000 to
about 2500 over the last 30 days:

It also looks from this graph that there is a 7 day cycle to it,
which kind of indicates a good chunk of dialup / parttime users.
They are hard to find for ISPs.
