Of course, youre so smart that youve never had a virus on any of your
machines, never misread a security warning, never made a mistake.
As for your idea, without internet how are these customers ever going to
update and fix the worm??
If I was you, I'd be asking why my ISP doesnt drop traffic on these
known worm ports.
And, if youre firewalled, whats the big deal anyway?? You know what the
cause is, you know youre protected, you know with time, these scans will

That would be, actually.
Using PC's since 1984 and never once had a virus.
In the beginning, I simply avoided atachments that could be executed.
But one ActieX became a channel for vruses, I moved to OS/2.
Then when IBM dropped OS/2 (Microsoft's anti-trust convictions tell the
story there) and the worm viruses appeared, I moved to linux.
19 virus-free years.
Just avoid Microsoft products and their inherent design flaws and
insecurities and you don't even NEED anti-virus software.
