Conficker, the Internet's No. 1 threat, gets an update - Network World
The Conficker worm, probably the biggest threat since the Melissa virus a decade ago has been updated.
Initially it appeared the bad guys were concerned that the spread of the worm was too successful and they had slowed it's rate of infection. Now, with changes in it's behavior, the worms spread is escalating.
The days of informal, unprofessional vandalism type hacking is gone. Replaced by very organized professional criminal organizations. Requires an equally professional attitude when dealing with the threat.
Fortunately we have a great choice of inexpensive, even free tools that we can utilize to protect us from the threats.
