seems like maybe a huge April Fools joke by some hackers. But in case it's not I'm glad I'm rocking a Mac

conficker is a big threat, but it's way overblown in my opinion. April 1 isn't the "attack" date, it's the next scheduled "ask for instructions date", of which there have already been a couple.
If people would just keep automatic updates turned on, this would never have been a problem.

Conficker.....Who names this shit? I guess "cornf#&ker" wouldn't have made the mainstream news.

Use Windows Scan or theses Scans to fix it if you have it says so on that link

Windows Live OneCare safety scanner: Free online tool for PC health and safety


Quote:
Microsoft offers a web-based scanner (note that some users have reported it crashed their machines; I had no trouble with it), so you might try one of these downloadable options instead: Symantec's Conficker (aka Downadup) tool, Trend Micro's Cleanup Engine, or Malwarebytes. Conficker may prevent your machine from accessing any of these websites, so you may have to download these tools from a known non-infected computer if you need them. Follow the instructions given on each site to run them successfully. (Also note: None of these tools should harm your computer if you don't have Conficker.)
