The Conflicker Worm - Beware - Ensure Your Anti-Virus Program is Solid

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Olsen Ziegler Realty

I learned about The Conflicker Worm tonight on 60 minutes.  It reminded me of a cyber version of The Hunt for Red October book by Tom Clancy.

Here is a good article at PC World.

It sounds like it can gain an entry into home computers, but not as easy as corporate networks.  Regardless, the take away here is to ensure your anti-virus, firewall and malware protection software is up to date.

Hi Rebecca -- I hope it doesn't worm it's way into my computer, or others...
