Because there is no patch...

...for human stupidity. Which is why Storm keeps spreading. There is simply no excuse for people to continue infecting themselves. I'd take a stab and antivirus companies but they simply can't keep up. Until they all move to true behavioral-based detection, they won't be able to handle the flood of malware coming from the miscreants out there.

Today, Storm worm brings us a new attempt to infect people by getting them to believe that there's a new filesharing application called Krackin. Great!

Below are samples of the e-mails, screenshots and the javascript exploits.
