Take action now to protect from Conficker.c (aka Downadup)

by Sephem on Mar.30, 2009, under Security

The time has come to be proactive against Conficker.c as it is due to become active on 1 April 2009. It would be far more beneficial for you to try and remove any trace of this nasty before it becomes active as one of its traits is to block access to any tools that could be used to remove it including blocking access to anti-virus updates.

Make sure that you run the free scans available from
BDtools.net
Sophos
