Next week, at 8pm EST/00:00 GST, the Conficker worm will download its next code update..
This from databeast, he's a pro, trust his judgment:
I've spent the last 4 months spending damn near my every waking hour fighting this thing.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about.. just go google 'Conficker' now.. I'll be happy to answer any questions
In the meantime, go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
Tell your friends to do the same
If you cant reach that site, you are already infected. Take your machine offline and get it disinfected by a professional.
But remember this, right now If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem
Conficker is shaping up to be the scariest, largest botnet ever to have existed. If you use Windows as your operating system, and you dont regularly update it, you are part of the problem, and your computer is likely now the property of some shadowy criminal syndicate based out of God-Knows-Where.
If you arent a Windows user, but you know people who are, tell them the above instructions. We have less than 7 days until what could, in the worst case scenario, be the most destructive event ever witnessed on the internet, a vast, data-stealing network owned by an organized crime syndicate. We aren't talking science fiction here folks.
