I'm not particularly sympathetic toward those who have been infected, insofar as this worm exploits a vulnerability in Windows for which Microsoft released a patch more than two weeks ago. In other words, if you were infected, it's your own fault.
I'm using a new icon on this post, but it is not a gratuitous icon post, because I decided to write the post before I decided to make the icon. It is somewhat gratuitous, however, in that I'm experimenting to see how well LiveJournal deals with a certain HTML tag. Call it a GEP, I guess.
ETA: It deals with that tag very poorly. Drat.
