So this worm sounds fairly innocuous, but...

Does it only spread through ODG files, or could it possibly also be in a DOC, XLS, PPT, etc file that went through OOo? --> Sounds like the file has no replicating abilities, and the answer is only ODG?

Does the worm affect users who have NeoOffice but not the main OOo? --> Sounds like yes?

Does the worm affect users who do not have Neo or OOo? --> Sounds like no?

Is Ruby installed by default on non-Server Macs with Tiger? --> I'm not clear if Ruby is even present?
