Conficker is gearing itself up for a new update

16 July 2009 | Category: Software

Security experts are predicting the conficker worm is now set to cause more chaos as it gears up for a new update planned for the 1st April 2009.

The worm is expected to send for requests from the 60,000 domains that it generates daily. The difficulty is knowing exactly what the worm intends to do.

The evolution of the conficker worm (also known as Downadup) has been impressive. It recently added itself a new form of protection that deleted DNS (Domain Name System) look ups, peer-to-peer network communications and the ability to disable some anti-virus software.
