Perhaps for random address scanning, but certainly not for scanning
worms generally. In addition to the paper Steve Bellovin provided a
link to, consider how many vulnerabilities are in the app compared to
the stack and raw listeners these days. Miscreants know how to
progamatically feed a list of search terms to the search engines and
parse the results. There are a lot of vulnerable web apps out there
and they are actively being scanned, tested and exploited. Plugging
the words 'rfi' and 'scanner' into a search engine for further detail.
