In my opinion it was because there was a publically disclosed exploit
that worked, and it only exploited Windows 2000 not any other Windows
OS.  This is a normal cycle for these types of automated threats.  It
is much easier to decompile or  take existing code, edit-instert
exploit, recompile and disseminate, then it is to create a exploit in
the first place.
