Conficker Wiggles Its Way In
Call it the tech world's equivalent of the H1N1 Swine Flu. The malicious worm known as Conficker exploited a critical Windows flaw and infected at least 9 million PCs, spreading rapidly across corporate networks worldwide. The malware maelstrom replicated at a blinding speed with a variety of attack vectors. And then if that wasn't enough, the industry braced for an April 1 update of the worm. That April Fools date came and went with no major meltdown. But security experts say that silence might end with a malicious attack down the road.
