    Default Conficker.(A/B/C) Worm/Virus?

    Being that this is a world wide forum, have you heard or seen any zombie computers, yet? I've been following this for sometime, being that my previous lappy got this virus!

    i really hope this is a april fools joke, and not the real deal. Check my lappy got infected i have to clean the HD clean and start from scratch.

    I just got this email...

    The Conficker worm is scheduled to possibly cause widespread damage April 1, 2009.

    Severity: High Risk

    What is it?
    The Conficker worm is a type of virus that lives unnoticed in your PC while spreading itself to others over the Internet. Currently the worm does not harm infected computers, but it has the capacity to cause considerable damage at a later time. Experts fear it may cause damage starting April 1. Steps should be taken to protect your PC from this worm.

    Who is at risk?
    Users whose computers are not configured to receive patches and updates from Microsoft and who are not running an up-to-date anti-virus product are most at risk. All customers who have a ZoneAlarm product that includes antivirus have protection, including ZoneAlarm Antivirus, ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security. Each of these products not only includes anti-virus, but also the OSFirewall which monitors and blocks dangerous behavior within your operating system.

    If you are running ZoneAlarm Free Firewall as your exclusive PC security software you are at risk, beause it does not contain both antivirus and OS Firewall protection.
