    Default Patch & protect yourselves

    Conficker virus takes advantage of a bug in Windows. It will be hard to remove once it benefits from the bug.

    If you are not infected, prevent it with the patch (attached).

    If you are infected, remove the infection with the tools available here and try patching after that.

    Procedure:

    Download > Double click the patch > complete the installation > restart

    If you are in local network and want to scan for conficker machines both infected and clean....see here
    Informatik IV: Containing Conficker

    A network scanner available in this site which needs to be run on your local network. I did that and my IPS has successfully detected and blocked the traffic.

    Default How conficker will steal your credit card information

    Answer: By installing a fake antivirus, giving you fake alerts of virus threats and requesting paid fixing. Please do not fall into the trap.

    This clearly indicates that they are aiming your hard earned money than trying to prove themselves.And this makes it dangerous. Expect more cunning tricks.

    Details:

    Conficker is downloading a program called Spyware Protect 2009 and displaying warning messages saying that the computer is infected and offering to clean it up for $49.95.

    Here is what it shows



    What's new?

    Researchers still analyzing new component code of the worm that began being spread via peer-to-peer and being downloaded off domains that host the Waledec worm on Wednesday but were finding the task difficult because the instructions are encrypted.

    Another important extract:

    It also does not leave a trace of itself in the host machine. It runs and deletes all traces, no files, no registries etc.
    P.S: Thanks for the update.

    Whats next?

    It may come up with a fake Paypal, SBT or ICICI bank or HDFC bank site

    If you haven't patched, Please do it now.

    Why?

    Infected computers could still be remotely controlled to do something else.

    How to identify?

    The worm disables security software and blocks access to security Web sites.
