The most important thing is for the ISPs to notify their customers to clean their PCs.  I think more effort should go into finding zombies and informing the user to clean up their PCs or loose connection.

 While this one definitely goes down in the "Awesome" column, this was a has-been botnet that only accounts for 4% of the current spam flux (a far cry from its once 33.3~%).
