Conficker/Downadup Worm

There is a report of a new variant of the Conficker/Downadup worm named Win32/Conficker.D. which infects the local computer, terminates services, blocks access to numerous security related Web sites and downloads arbitrary code. Conficker.D can relay command instructions to other Conficker.D infected computers via built-in peer-to-peer (P2P) communication. This variant does not spread to removable drives or shared folders across a network (as with previous variants).

There is also a report that spread and execution of this worm may be triggered today, April 1, 2009. So be very cautious in the way we carry out all our Internet-related activities especially today.

Users and administrators are encouraged to take the following preventative measures to mitigate the security risks:

· Install anti-virus software and keep it up to date
· Update unpatched systems as soon as possible
· Keep personal and business USB drives separate
· Do not plug an unknown USB drive into your computer
· Disable the AutoRun (of media devices) feature on systems
