And about 10 million PCs are infected. Just check out the charts of its port activity on ISC. Its astronomical how many people were too lazy to patch Windows.
People just don't notice that they are infected, because they expect a virus in this decade to make funny words pop up on their screen, whilst Conficker is a botnet and often just waits for instructions from bad guys.
That is a dangerously incorrect assumption.
I'm just waiting for the fake page like this where it always says you have the virus.
What a useful internet tool. I hope this really works because it says my computer is squeaky clean from Conficker.
Jeez, Conficker was supposed to be the be-all end-all. I don't know anyone personally who's been infected as of yet. :/
Where can I download conficker? I do not have it and would hate to be out of the loop. =(
Conficker check time.
Can we please get a virus that lives up to it's hype?
Great idea, translating a technical subject most people won't even try to understand into a simple test everybody can do.
Not sure it's fool-proof though, and I'm afraid Conficker D might block this website as well ;-)
Really nice virus indicator!
This is a cool idea - it uses hotlinked images from AV/Security companies to provide a visual approximation/test of whether you are affected by Conficker's prevention of access to those relevant sites (in turn giving you an instant way of determining that you are infected). Admittedly no use to me at all (I run Ubuntu lol) but points for a cool idea :)
why isnt half of it loading.... just kidding
