'Conficker' Worm Wakes Up, But It's Quiet
The "Conficker" worm is live within Australia and elsewhere in the world, security vendors have confirmed, where it is April 1. At this point, however, it remains quiescent.
Security company Trend Micro has seen the Conficker or Downadup worm increase the number of DNS resolutions, as expected, said Paul Ferguson, the lead researcher for security intelligence, advanced threats research. At this point, however, the worm has taken no other action.
Conficker is expected to hit the United States on Wednesday, April 1. But it is already a day ahead across the international date line, where Conficker is waking up, and making its way westward through Asia and Europe.
