MS Windows Users Beware of April Fools Day!


Unfortunetly, this is no April Fool’s Day hoax.  A worm, dubbed Conficker, which was discovered in October of 2008, which reportedly has already wide-spread infection of MS Windows systems around the world, will unleash its maliscious payload on the first of April in 2009.  Microsoft is still working on a fix for the exploit that the worm uses to infect computers running the MS operating systems.  Unlike many other worms, this one takes great strides to remain on an infected computer by tampering with Windows Update.  Users of Microsoft Windows systems running Windows 2000 through the most current version of Windows Vista are urged to ensure that they have installed all the lastest critical OS updates and have up-to-date anti-virus software and virus signatures.  For more information please follow the links below:
