Microsoft has released a news about a new virus is going to release on April 1st 2009. This is called Conficker computer worm and this worm can infect your computer and spread itself to other computers across a network automatically, without human interaction.

Most antivirus software could detect and block the Conficker worm, so if you have updated antivirus software on your computer, you are at a much lower risk of being infected by the Conficker worm.




So double check you are running any virus protecting program in your computer and make sure it is up to date.

  1. MOst likely, computers with no Windows patches updated were affected in this worm.
    Microsoft is taking it so serious that they will pay big cash reward to whoever can pinpoint the origin and responsible of the virus.

  3. So far I haven't heard about any Conficker virus attacks. I have run all the windows updates on Servers and workstations in my office and checked their antivirus protection to make sure that they are up to date. May be this was another April fools joke !!
