Seems this borked software bit is in more than just hardcore SQLServer. It
seems that the bits are also in visio2000 and a few other things :( Hence
the 'more than server platform' infection spread. This also helps to
explain the speed of infection and spread, as with more possible targets
things should move more quickly.

The interesting is the huge spike at a common time (00:30EST) one wonders
if there is a group tracking down the initial infector or not :)
