PHP worm might be more appropriate term. However in this case popular media (like usually) is using "Linux" as synonym of "Open Source systems". Considering the extreme popularity of PHP, it is quite suprising there seems to be very little effort to actually make it secure.
The "PHP is the weak link of LAMP security" aspect is amplified with the fact that most PHP applications are not installed with package managment (apt/yum), and thus do not get security updates via the normal process.
