Malware warning – What would you do?

Over recent months and 5 million computers later, an incredibly damaging and disruptive piece of malware has been highlighted as a growing risk to all users of Windows-based machines. This threat is known as the ‘Conficker worm’, and due to the changing nature of the worm, Microsoft and the Anti- Virus community are having trouble dealing with this threat. Given how de- structive and disruptive malware is to both security and productivity, and as valued clients of Total Network Support, I would like to remind you to ensure that your PC’s and Servers are kept up-to-date at all times. You need to make sure you are patched. It only takes one computer to be infected before Con- ficker will start infecting others.

Businesses have an bigger challenge, because Conficker has yet another method for evading detection. Once the worm is inside a machine, it applies its own version of the Microsoft patch that fixes the vulnerability Conficker exploited in the first place. So a business running a standard network scan, looking for unpatched machines, might come up empty-handed, even though some computers on the network are infected.
