Beware of the Conflicker worm.

I was busy yesterday checking the computers at the office to ensure they have the latest updates and the latest virus definitions in preparation for the Conflicker worm that’s due to strike today. So far I haven’t seen any signs of the worm in the network at my office so things seem to be under control at the moment. All you really need to do is make sure Windows is patched up and your virus software up to date and you’ll make it through.
No doubt people will be searching the Internet for a tool to remove the worm. I tried that myself and came across a site that pretended to scan my computer for viruses and popped up scary messages saying my computer was infected. I have a feeling today is going to be a field day for rogue virus scanners.
Be careful out there.
