Conficker – is it a wash?


Is the Conficker threat just a wash? I think it is. Shame on me if my PC is going to shut down in a minute because it’s infected. But that won’t happen. Why? Because the IT department of the company I work for keeps Windows up-to-date with the latest security patches. According to IBM only 6% of PC’s are infected in the US. 31% in Europe and 45% in Asia. I thought it had Ukrainian roots but who knows… maybe it’s Chinese? BTW: Check out – the ultimate “government approved” website of the People’s Republic of China 😉
