Conficker: The April 1st Worm
« on: March 31, 2009, 06:41:29 pm »
With all the silliness around the forum today, I thought I would bring a downer to this party.
So, What do u guys think? I know a few of us r in the IT field.

If u want some updated info, Lifehacker did a good report:

Protect ur windows PC from teh Conficker Worm


Make sure you are protected.

[Edit]

Had to edit out all the leet speak -_-

Annnnnd.... It does nothing.
So far the worm has woken up, but hasn't done anything yet. Which could be a joke in it's self.

I dunno, still kind of scary.
