Have You Got The Conficker Virus?

Check Your Computer For This Virus

LABELLE, FL. -- Conficker, also known as Downup, Downandup, Conflicker, and Kido, is a computer worm that surfaced November 21st, 2008 with Conficker.A and targets the Microsoft Windows operating system. The worm exploits a known vulnerability (MS08-067) in the Windows Server service used by Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7 Beta.

Microsoft and others have worked hard to eradicate the virus through security update patch programs and removal tool updates so it is unlikely that you may have the computer virus Conficker, but it doesn't hurt to check your computer anyway.
