Why they call it Linux worm? From what I read it is a PHP vulnerability.

Yes it's a vulnerability but they get more air play and potential users buying their product if they call it a worm/virus/whatever.

Moreover, PHP can be run on many platforms, if it is vulnerable, what has it to do with Linux?
