I think it more likely that most bad guys will stay in the shadows until
most people have stopped paying attention (which will probably be a few
weeks after Black Hat). There will still be a significant number of
sites that will not have patched, so there will be plenty of exploitable
servers, but none of the extra vigilance there is now.

FWIW,

Doug
