They are calling it the "Conficker" worm.
Is this April Fools or for real?
Is there any way to prevent this virus from attack?
Is updating our Windows security patches and anti virus enough?

Heres a good article:
PC World - Conficker set to strick!

Keep you anti-virus definitions up to date, install all security patches from Windows Update.

Its real. Most AV's have updated defintions for it already. Just keep updated. This isn't something you are going to get tomorrow. You either already have it or you don't.

Me personally I have never run any antimalware software on any of my PCs or servers and never had a problem. 98% of all of this stuff comes from known exploits that have already been patched, users running daily activities with administrative rights to their machines, or users clicking on stuff they shouldn't be clicking on anyways.

I ain't a computer wiz and thought that it was a hoax but the IT Dept. at my work said it's there. They gave out this site to scan for it, http://www.conflickerworkinggroup.org. Just went on it and took alittle to load but mine was OK. Try it if you like.

That's what I said for years. That's until I got a virus and almost lost everything I had.

People worry to much about that crap. You will not get a virus on your system unless YOU allow it.

+1.

Never had one, never will.

As for the guy who said you never get spyware, tracking cookies are everywhere, and they will get in unless you NEVER use IE at all and install cookiesafe on Firefox (or disable all cookies etc).

Just got to be careful.
