The sophisticated Conficker worm has infected about 800 computers at the University of Utah, campus officials said today.
The outbreak was first detected Thursday and, by Friday, had spread to computers at the hospitals, medical school and colleges of nursing, pharmacy and health.
Chris Nelson, a University of Utah health sciences spokesman, said that patient data and medical records had not been compromised because they are protected more securely.
The outbreak was still active this morning, although it has been contained, he said.

Must really be staying low, if they can keep it up and not tell a single soul or brag the least be, they'll never be caught.

I don't know, if my wife had to keep her mouth just to stay alive, I'd be digging her grave. I think Symantec is behind this whole thing. I'm thinking it won't be long now before they suddenly have the only fix.

They still haven't decrypted the payload yet??
By the way - it's dictionary comprises of just 30 passwords. That is enough to infect over 12 million PCs. Think about it.
