Will You Be Worm’d on April 1st?

Reposting Richard Pascoe’s article. It’s good information for those who rely on Windows to run their lives, oops, I mean computers!

Are you about to be infected on April 1st 2009? In the New York Times they discuss the Conficker Worm which will activate itself on April 1st.

Should you be concerned? Well, Only if your anti virus program is not up-to-date, or if your Windows updates have not been done.

If you have had problems with virus’s and spyware over the last few months, remember: This is a rootkit designed not to be found!

Follow the suggestion’s from Symantec (NOTE: I do not recommend Symantec or their products) and this link from Microsoft to action this worm.
