Cost of the worm

"In a move unsurprising to those of us who have had interactions with
their
so-called customer support, AT&T Broadband and Excite at Home are
indefinitely filtering all incoming traffic on http port 80 for
residential customers. They could have cut access to those running
compromised servers, but instead chose to deny the ability to run a web
server to all subscribers to their service. DSL anyone?" DSL won't save
you. Verizon is apparently also blocking port 80 for their DSL
customers, in addition to blocking outgoing port 25 and requiring use of
Verizon's SMTP servers to send email."
