Filters out worm hits

Worm Report is a script that filters out known worm hits from the access log, and puts them into their own files named for the IP/Host that has been "wormed". A report containing the count, hostname, ip, and a guess at the parent domain is printed to STDOUT to facilitate contacting these individuals. This script is useful in the short term to get the info to the people who need it. Adding a new worm requires adding a new worm hit string to the DATA section of the script, nothing so fancy (or exhaustive) as an Apache module.
