My Blaster theory gains strength

This morning, the first HTTP exploit attempt in 5 days showed up in the logs. It confirms that nothing has changed in my ability to detect and log these exploits, confirming that there has indeed been a complete absence of these attacks on my system for days.

I think this adds strength to the theory I proposed yesterday the Blaster Worm seems to have taken down virtually all of the systems previously infected with Nimba, Code Red, and other worms that propagate through HTTP exploits.

I'm still waiting to see a news article offer the same or similar theory.
