There is hope though. As the exploit exists at the hop-by-hop level, and 
because a significant portion of port 80 of the internet is hidden 
behind transparent proxies, it will probably cause the spread of any 
Apache worms to be restricted to where Apache servers can be contacted 
directly. We hope, anyway.

Graham
