Can we get some fucking links to these websites they block? Instead of saying they're just "anti-virus sites".

I believe that Secureworks.com is one of the websites blocked by the virus.

Thank you. I can access that website and I'm not running a proxy. So I should be safe.

So then isn't the solution to just set your clock to April 2 and then back again?

Oh god I'm scared shitless, I do NOT want to lose my barely about 1 year old gaming computer.

I have Avast antivirus updated and set to maximum protection, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware also updated and just scanned with no malicious software, and Currently scanning with SpyBot Search and Destroy which is also of course updated.

My PC is fully updated by automatic updates, Firewall turned on and windows defender turned on.

Is there anything else I should do?

I'll do a full scan with my anti virus right after I'm done with spybot scan.

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

The site worked for me, I feel so much better after reading that, like literally I was shaking and couldn't even talk to my friend on the phone very good.

I'm still a little shaky whether to believe that blog post or not, but I will fight to the end to save my PC!!!

Apparently, if you can load up the Microsoft website, or the AVG website, you're not infected. The virus blocks sites that contain fixes for it, and popular anti-virus sites. If this is a bunch of bullshit, then this person is the ultimate troll.

Everybody's freaked out by that stupid virus all over the news. Well here are some tips.

How do I stay safe?

Security experts recommend that you run good antivirus software (such as Norton or McAfee) and that you keep updated with all the latest patches and updates from both Microsoft (Vista and XP) and for your antivirus provider. "Free" security scans from various websites are not recommended. Google searches for Conficker protection software are not advisable either, as they could redirect you sites that will actually infect you. Users who received all the automatic updates from Microsoft should be already protected from Conficker.

How do I know if I'm infected?

Spreading across networks, Conficker finds vulnerable computers and automatically disables security services (like Windows Update and antivirus) and blocks access to various well-known security firms' websites. Another symptom of Conficker infection is when your Internet connection is running suspiciously slow, without any apparent reason. The best way to find out whether you already have Conficker is to use one of the Microsoft, Symantec or McAfee security tools Aa free trial version of these should at least help you remove the virus and keep you safe tomorrow).

A free program to test for and remove the Conficker worm is at the Symantec official website. You can go there and download it.

Those dirty Russians better stop hacking I swear.

But knowing how vicious Anon can be I wouldn't be surprised if they could find the person who made it.

Regardless, linux still sucks.

I agree. If you update your computer regularly and you have a good and up to date AV program then you are safe. If not then you are at risk no matter what OS you use. Yes, windows has the highest risk, but if you use good AV software you should be fine. I would rather be at a slightly higher risk of viruses then run an OS like linux that is riddled with compatibility problems.

I sure hope this is false. I think my computer is okay because I can still log onto several antivirus websites.

I don't think its a prank or not, I think its more of a scam... somehow...

Chances are the authors are waiting for a time when everyone isn't so aware of the virus to launch the instructions. I mean, maybe they'll wait till people aren't as concerned about their security to launch it.

Well, I'll just say the last time I heard such apocalyptic sh1t, it was about SARS epidemic.
And before that it was Y2K.
And countless others.

The bigger the hysteria, the smaller the result. The only thing Conficker fvcked is our mind.

It's not as bad as you would think... at least here in North America. Only 6% of North American computers are infected... which is still a LOT, but not comparable to the 80% worldwide. Most of it is in Asia, Europe and South America.
