The April 1st Global Virus Attack

Published: 2009-03-27 09:03:50

Or, perhaps not, as reported by F-Secure:

Q: I heard something really bad is going to happen on the Internet on April 1st! Will it?
A: No, not really.

Q: Seriously, the Conficker worm is going to do something bad on April 1st, right?
A: The Conficker aka Downadup worm is going to change it's operation a bit, but that's unlikely to cause anything visible on April 1s

Media hype will ensue, but just make sure you keep your computer up-to-date with security patches (that goes for any operating system), and you should be fine.
