Hurry up and Wait!

This week was all about Confiker. I'm actually pretty appreciative of the attention this worm commanded. The best of both worlds for Information Security practitioners; widespread publicity grabbing the attention of company executives, sysadmins, and the average Joe, but not actually bring down the universe. But what now, nobody knows. What I do know is this event educated many people who otherwise had no idea of the implications of unpatched systems, lack of antivirus and the power of worms and Botnets. Hopefully everyone will be more prepared for whats next.
