Beware the First of April

Posted: Tuesday, March 24th, 2009 by Gene

In what might be considered an April Fool’s Day trick gone horribly, horribly wrong.  Computer security experts are in a race against time to stop the Conficker C Worm before its scheduled payload dump of April First.

Apparently, it’s not quite clear yet what will happen on the First but people are planning for the worst.

There’s currently no way to remove the worm from your computer but a good way to see if it’s on your machine is to see if your computer ran critical updates this month.  If it did, it’s probably not infected.  Apparently one of the affects of this worm is that it will block your computer from downloading and installing these critical updates.

For more information about this worm, please take a look at CNN.com’s article which goes into much more detail about this worm.
