Dawn of the Linux Worms?

The Luppi worm is blazing a trail with great potential for attackers. We might learn a lot about how secure Linux systems are in the next few months. Over the weekend reports began to filter in of a new network worm that focused on a variety of vulnerabilities in products typically found in Linux-based Web servers. It's been tagged by many as a Linux problem, and is, in a practical sense, although most of the vulnerabilities aren't strictly Linux issues. So far there's no evidence it's a serious real-world problem, although the Internet Storm Center has been reporting that they are seeing multiple variants of it circulating around the net. Is This the Dawn of the Linux Worms?
