If sobig.f were the only worm/virus, then yes.

But taken together with every other monthly thing that I get attacked
with (to no avail, but that doesn't make it ok), Microsoft has risen
higher than any single virus author on my list.

btw, my current sobig.f bitbucket count is about 45,000 on alt.org,
which comes to about 4.5GB of data transfer.
