At the end of the report, even CBS' network was infected by the worm! I'm so glad I use a Mac (and not internet explorer, especially!). http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/03/27/60minutes/main4897053.shtml Microsoft has a $250,000 bounty up for the hackers responsible for it. http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/ptech/02/13/virus.downadup/index.html http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/03/24/conficker.computer.worm/ Even us Mac users, anyone surfing the 'net can never be too careful. I use openDNS on my home network and they are currently blocking any of the sites generated by the worm to infect (http://blog.opendns.com/2009/02/09/stats-are-back-and-conficker/). Anyone with Windows, be warned. Keep that virus protection updated and be careful what you click on. Look out on April 1 if you do have it, supposedly the virus is scheduled the 'phone home' for instructions on what to do next.
