Any worm that generates names with repeating characters or patterns.
There are a few; I was thinking of coding them in.

By the way, one feature I'd like to see in the "poisoned" list: a
second field, after the file name, that lets you (optionally) tag 
the poisoned name with a message to be used when the name is discovered.
This would be useful to identify worms to the administrator and/or
a person receiving an automatic response. Right now, my local
recipes generate such strings but the general poisoning mechanism
does not.
