Conficker Worm...

Well if you're reading this, you've managed to escape the stupid worm that was supposed to wreak havoc on machines today. The Conficker worm, as it's been named, has not taken hold as expected mainly because people have been on high alert -- meaning that many of you listened, updated your operating system, and woke up those antivirus programs.

Some of you even turned off your computers and refuse to turn them back on till tomorrow.

But regardless of what you did to protect yourself, just remember this; protection against viruses is not a "special occasion" event, it's a full time job. Conficker may not have been able to do too much today, but the idiots who created it may have decided to change the date of attack - or done some other modification to the worm. This worm does an E.T..... it "phones home" to get further instructions. Annoying, isn't it?

So stay on alert, keep that antivirus running, and as they used to say on Wayne's World, "Party On, Garth!"

Oh good lord, I just dated myself.
