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.

Really? I was not aware.

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!

Wasn't there one recently just like that? That one that paralyzed the
British NHS and many other places?
