Conficker Virus


Recommended Posts

Conficker was unleashed in November, and by February an estimated 12 million users worldwide had already been infected with Conficker or one of its variants such as Conficker B++. The virus leads to your PC becoming a botnet to send SPAM and a vehicle for intruders to steal address books, credit card numbers, private information, and browsing histories.


Rumours have the virus becoming a time bomb set to explode on April 1, 2009.

Confiker C is set to "go off" tomorrow.


With regards to all these corporate/school/council networks being infected with it, obviously some IT departments aren't doing their job and keeping their systems patched and AV'd up. This doesn't do IT workers any favours at a time when it's their jobs that usually get cut first! :roll:
