Wow, Conficker is still baffling security experts?  Props to the people who wrote it I guess.


I've had this affect me recently.  Some of my, ah, shall we say "computer-challenged" friends have apparently had their Facebook accounts hacked because "they" have been posting links to phishing sites on people's walls.



>For those still clinging to XP, Microsoft noted that infection rates for Vista were significantly lower than for XP.

Yeah, but is that because of Vista being better, or is it because no one uses Vista...  Sort of like Mac OS.  Why create virii and trojans for an OS that doesn't have much use in comparison to WinXP?
