Famous Conficker worm

Famous Conficker worm created a lot of buzz attracting world press attention when researchers alerted that the virus is programmed to do something special on 1st April and security experts should be prepared for anything, nothing special occurred on 1st April but the worm kicked into action last night updating itself via a Peer2Peer network between infected machines.

The latest Conficker/Kido variant (Net-Worm.Win32.Kido.js) also downloads and installs rogue anti-spyware remover named Spyware Protect 2009 which nags users to pay $49.95 for removing falsely reported infections, interestingly the new variant is scheduled to be functional till 3rd May only.
