Not to forget Symantec's overall assessment: 
Risk Level 1: Very Low"

And the technical details from Symantec's site further support what I
said: it's a worm, not a virus, and the hole has been patched forever:
RedHat 6.2!

"The worm appears to spread using a known TSIG vulnerability discovered
early in 2001 to spread.

Security patches for Red Hat Linux are available at:
      * RedHat 7.0 Security Advisories:
      * RedHat 6.2 Security Advisories: "
