Has anyone seen any problems related to the Conflicker worm today?

I hope so. It's been all over the news the past couple of days. Had to explain to my daughter last night how to scan her system for this. She was going to just turn her computer off and plug it back on tomorrow. Yipes! Turns out she didn't have the worm anyway.

My dad was worried about it but keep in mind he doesn't do anything online. Checking his e-mail is a big deal. He did have an issue with his computer and I did a system restore. I highly doubt it was related to 'Conflicker Worm'. Here is a link a friend of mine gave me last night http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/techalerts/TA09-088A.html I'm assuming its pretty true because its on us-cert.gov.

Just another Y2K.
I said it before and I'll say it again, even though this may sound like an irrational conspiracy theory.
When we investigate these
"rumors" or actual viruses, the first place we should look is at those who have the most to gain.

Who profits from viruses and rampant virus rumors?

Certainly not the kiddies who can download virus scripts and send them out.

The people who really profit are people who sell virus detection software and the people who "fix" computers that are damaged by these viruses.

Just a thought.

It would help to further explain why free OSes are not so targeted by these people, despite the extensive documentation and their open source nature. The commercial opportunities might be too limited.

Yet Microsoft is offering a HUGE reward to bring this to prosecution.

I haven't come across it either, but everything I have is protected. It is still out there though, and it seems to be very well thought out hiding its tracks.

Conficker is now awake and it looks like it's downloading some "scareware" called Spyware Protect 2009 to infected machines.

I have seen this once already and F Server did not clear this. AVG Free did work though.
