Everyone is worried and talking about Conficker virus, which is said to be hitting computers across the world on April 1st. April 1st has come and gone, and so far there are no symptoms of Conficker virus in any computer or network. It was supposed to allow its creators install softwares in the affected machines remotely. It turns off the automatic backup service, deletes previous restore points, disables many security services, blocks access to security web sites and opens infected machines to receive more programs from its creators. The worm then tries to spread itself to other computers on the same network.
Sounds good to make many internet and computer user for getting scared about it. What else will be best day for Malware creators to play and have fun with the users. And even media and many websites created an Hype so that the news reaches to every common person. Now many anti virus program creators and developers are laughing for spending many sleepless nights thinking about prevention methods.
But it will be always good to find preventions before the actual harm comes. If everyone has neglected about this worm, then may be they attacked with the worm and do the damage then saying, We already warned you but u did not take any action. Both ways, the creators will be having fun.
