Defeat the Conficker Worm Before it's Too Late.

Sunday night, Sixty Minutes warned us about the insidious worm, Conflicker, which will begin trying to connect to 50,000 web domains to receive further instructions tomorrow, April 1. It's anyone's guess as to what those instructions will be.

A complete analysis of Conflicker worm including a list of all the sites you will not be able to access if infected by Conflicker can be found here.

How to diagnose and defeat the dangerous Conficker worm from USA Today's blog provides more links and information regarding the Conflicker worm.

If you can't get through because the web address or URL contains one of the hundreds of names Conflicker blocks you can click on this Microsoft malicious software removal site, which doesn't contain "Microsoft" in the URL. Here, you'll find a free all-purpose malicious software scanner.

Additional tools:

F-Secure Easy Clean

Enigma Software Free Conflicker Removal Tool

Norton Conflicker Removal Tool

Microsoft says they are checking into this and suggested this last-ditch option: contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support at no charge, using the PC Safety hotline at 1-866-PCSAFETY.

I've heard from multiple sources that the Conficker worm won't be a threat to Mac users, thank goodness
