Possible that they wanted people to patch the problem and create a
little havoc at the same time?

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...
