Worried about the Conficker worm striking on April 1st? A few simple steps can protect you.

Target: All users of Windows XP and Windows Vista.

If you’re worried about the Conficker worm striking on April 1st, don’t be.

On April 1st the Conficker worm will simply start taking more steps to protect itself. Beginning on April 1st the worm will use a communications system that is more difficult for security researchers to interrupt.

FAQ
Norton Recommends

The Conficker worm, sometimes called Downadup or Kido has managed to infect a large number of computers. Specifics are hard to come by, but some researchers estimate that millions of computers have been infected with this threat since January. Current users of Symantec’s Norton security products are protected. Users who lack protection are invited to download a trial version of Norton AntiVirus 2009,Norton Internet Security 2009 or Norton 360 Version 3.0. If you are unable to reach our web site, you may be infected. In that case you will need to get to a computer that is not infected, download our specialized Conficker removal tool and run it on the infected machine before installing new antivirus software. Symantec has a detailed technical analysis of the threat here.


1. Advice to Stay Safe from the Downadup Worm:Run a good security suite (we are partial to Norton Internet Security 2009 and Norton 360 Version 3.0).
3. Keep your computer updated with the latest patches. If you don’t know how to do this, have someone help you set your system to update itself.
3. Don’t use “free” security scans that pop up on many web sites. All too often these are fake, using scare tactics to try to get you to purchase their “full” service. In many cases these are actually infecting you while they run. There is reason to believe that the creators of the Conficker worm are associated with some of these fake security products.
4. Turn off the “autorun” feature that will automatically run programs found on memory sticks and other USB devices.

As an I.T., I am aware of 1,000s of new viruses that come out every month...

But whenever one makes the News, it makes me a little suspicious as to who might've created it  :-\ ??? :o

There is a post that when I click on it, I get a message that leads me to a sign on screen for "goodspyder".  Anyone know what exactly that is?  You IT guys, PM me if it's important and I'll explain where I've run into it.

The other day Rodger posted a link to Kat's compilation of links to bible study tools. When I clicked on the CLV one, I was brought to a site and it said it had a virus or something and it had two buttons: continue or get me outta here.  I hit get me outta here.  I didn't try to revisit the site since then.  Don't know if anyone else had that experience.

when you get a message like that, usualy either button you click will get a virus to download, so try using the Crtl-Alt-delete and then click on that process inthe new window pop up and click the Stop process button.

safer this way
