While the workaround is fine, what about all those routers and NAS

Routers with samba? The NAS boxes - if people make them available on
the net, well. Run owncloud or some such on them.

Sure, many home routers have file and printer sharing capability. I think that
UPnP could possibly exacerbate the problem too.

They don't have to be available on the net if a local machine becomes
compromised by some other means. The worm would travel through
a private network like snails thorough a goose!
