Conficker Computer Worm
4/6/2009 Conficker is a remotely-controlled worm spreading rapidly throughout the internet to millions of computers around the world. After it silently infiltrates your system, the worm steals personal information, such as emails and banking transactions from your computer and moves on to your network connections. Conficker takes advantage of vulnerable computers that have not recently had anti-virus updates and possess weak passwords. It then spreads through your network and through removable devices, such as USB drives.

How do I remove the Conficker worm?
If your computer is infected with the Conficker worm, you may be unable to download certain security products, such as the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool or you may be unable to access certain Web sites, such as Microsoft Update. If you can't access those tools, try using the Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner. For more information, click here.
