Conlicker virus?

Postby S. [Burned] Y. » Fri Apr 03, 2009 2:54 pm

Has anyone heard anymore news on that thing? All I've heard so far is that quite a few people had turned off their PCs for the full April Fool's day.

If I have a keylogger, then everything on my computer has been stolen by now anyway, so I don't care.

I didn't even know about the damn thing. I don't believe in super computer viruses.

My friend ended up getting it. What it does is send all of your personal stuff, including anything a hacker would find nice to have, all on the day of April 1st. It then breaks your computer (break as in, destroy).

you guys all realize you're spelling it wrong, right?
conficker.
also, burned, i think you've the wrong virus on your hand.
for one, no virus can physically destroy a regular computer, second, many virii do that, general conficker does not.
what conficker does is:
stay on your system
open a port through upnp (to allow it to spread further)
patch the security hole it uses (to stop any other virii from using it, this is also something patched by an old MS patch in september)
turn off any anti virus app and firewall it can find running,
try to send itself to other computers through previously mentioned open port and USB storage devices (usb sticks, usb hard drives etc)
check for a new version of conficker at certain sites,
execute the new version, which can of course have any modification (including stuff like sending personal info, but at the moment, it does not)

Ugh, I hate spelling with a passion. -_-

-shrug-
His computer did all of that stuff on April first. All of the antivirus (his three home computers were all affected, and each have a different antivirus) were either removed or not correctly working. The Windows site was listed as blocked. So either it was Conficker or a almost mimicking trojan/virus.

spelling normally is no problem, with a name of a program however...

conficker does none of that, never did any of that but might do something like that later on.
all that april 1st rage with conficker? turned out to be bull.

voly, cheers.

a test if you're infected, yeah.
thing is, if you just update like you should, you won't get it, it's from a hole that's been patched in 08.

Not when you first saw it called as "Conflicker" and have been wanting to call it that since.
