	I was thinking sql-slammer, massive flood causing signifcant
amount of network infrastructure to go down.  (people on low speed links
with large blocks of address space were DoS'ed off the network).

	I don't think of drive-by browser/desktop infection as a networking
issue, more of an end-host issue.
