Although I have installed it on my Linux server, I typically download to my XP workstation and then upload to my server both as a backup and/or when I don't know the URL so as to use wget.

The distribution file tests/msgs/nimda.txt is identified by McAfee
(scan engine 4320, definitions 4398) as containing Exploit-MIME.gen.c.
It doesn't really contain the worm, but judging from its name and
location it is designed to be detected as a test of something.
