"MyDoom" rated as the most influential virus of '04

TechWeb has an article rating the "MyDoom" virus as the most influential of this past year. Below is one quote from the article which can be read in it's entirety here.

" '[MyDoom has] proven that there is an underground open-source community of worm writers who are sharing source code and virus-writing techniques not only with each other, but now also with spammers and phishers,' said Chasin."

I know that it (MyDoom) and variations of Netsky have been the most persistent at showing up in the inboxes here over the past few months so they could be right in their conclusion.
