Powershell worms have already started

It was innevitable, but a new worm has been released that is written Windows Powershell. This is is not entirely special (as worms are written in just about everything these days), but the interesting part for all of the messaging readers is that Exchange 2007 is the only major application that uses powershell right now. For now, this is distributed via Kazaa which makes it appear as though some one is just experimenting with the capabilities and will work on something more serious should they find some success.
