My guess is that neither one was expected to spread so quickly.  Just my
$.02

What I don't understand about both Blaster and SoBig.F is why the
writer(s) waitied so long to launch the second phase attacks.  Both
Blaster and SoBig waited a week to launch phase 2 which gave the white
hats more than enough time to analyze and prevent the phase 2 attacks.
The best time to have launched phase 2 would have been hours after phase
1 not days...
