Which won't help if you have a public webserver though, then you pretty much need PHP exposed...

No. I had already checked my machine after perusing /.

It seems like several conditions must be met for this worm to spread. Unlike most Windows viruses. See the interesting /. discussion.

Read this interesting article (http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1884318,00.asp) about the worm it says:
First, none of the trio of vulnerabilities in the luppi worm actually have a thing to do with Linux. Yes, these worms target Linux systems, but the holes they use to target aren't Linux holes at all. They're Web service script holes.

Saying that this is a Linux problem is like saying that the gaping Macromedia Flash hole is an XP problem.kagashe
