So the Conficker virus hits today. The first part of the world to get hit is Australia. The US, Asia and Europe are said to be the biggest targets. Geeks all over the world are waiting and watching to see what this thing is going to do to our networks.
Paul Fergusson of Trend Micro had this to say:
We have seen the Conficker or Downadup worm increase the number of DNS resolutions, as expected. At this point, however, the worm has taken no other action.
I actually have to go into work early to deal with this shit. Hopefully nothing happens at all and I can surf happily until normal working hours.
