Here we are, it’s April 1 and megavirus Conficker triggered. No planes fell out of the sky. No computers self-destructed. The virus bots merely phoned home and settled back in their easy chairs all over the world.
Don’t be complacent, though, Conficker is still out there and a payload could be in the offing. Make sure you use Microsoft Windows Update to download MS08-067 and you may like to try this to prevent USB sticks from infecting your PC.
Too late? A wide range of removal instructions and tools can be found via D-shield’s Web site.
