    Default April Fools Virus....

    Remember the dire predictions surrounding the "millennium bug?" The doom-and-gloom scenarios bandied about by security analysts on how computers could act when their clocks turned to January 1, 2000?

    Well, researchers are hoping that a potential April Fool's time bomb -- the Conficker.c that is supposed to hit computers on April 1 -- turns out to be equally unfounded.

    But realizing that hope alone is not a prudent option, here is a primer on the worm so you can adequately prepare yourself -- and your computer.

    How will April Fool's worm impact you? - CNN.com


    Enjoy Consolespot, just hope you're not infected

    w00t? I heard about that but I never took it seriously. Better not be true.
    Hopyfully the joke is that it's fake and nobody is infected.

    And ahh... I can finally relax. It said, that if I had updated my computer with latest stuff in march or such, I'm fine. I just checked Microsoft update, and I got all updates for now

    Got rid of Conficker.B a few days ago in preparation for Conficker.C

    The virus is quite real and my actual whole school network has it, the retards.

    lol
    If I got it, at least that will give me a valid reason to format the HDD.

    I just run a bunch of fix tools and installed some anti-spyware to deal with my problem (I'd rather not say "Infection..").

    My friend had to format his HDD 4 times. I prefer my solution.

    I have good antivirus, always latest Microsoft updates, no shared folders etc...

    Isn't this dangerous for Naka that doesn't have any anti-virus?
    Being without anti-virus feels like leaving the door open while you go away on a two week trip to Thailand.... lol

    My friend go it... he cant format because of school work, he'll reinstall in like three weeks when our research project is over. He's in safe mode land in vista now

    I was nervous the auto update was off for me and the update website blocked me but in IE it went through.
