Someone else mentioned "self-infliction" in this thread, and that's
Over the course of the past year or more, we've seen less & less
"scanning & self-propagating" malware, and more & more self-infliction,
either by being duped via social engineering or just by drive-by
As it stands, now -- and unless the pendulum swings the other way --
the whole "...v6 address space is larger, thus it is much harder to
scan and thus propagation of worms is much harder..." train of thought
is completely misguided.
