Linux Worm? Sure it is.

If the worm had downloaded it self from the infecting host then this Worm would still be spreading. It's not as bad as Windows worms because very few people run phpBB and stuff, but it's the same danger as Windows worms. It's scary that you just try to shrug it off as "not a Linux specific thing".
One should ask what can be one to minimize the damage? Locking down net access for the Apache user? Only running things/scipts not owned by the Apache User?
