Worms, Computer That Is

For all you geeks out there... if you didn't read Mark Bowden's Atlantic piece about the Conficker worm, "The Enemy Within," when it came out a few weeks ago, it's worth the bit of read. While I am not the nerd I used to be I found the story riveting and it intrigued me to find out a little more. It sure sounds to me like the 'bad guys' are at winning at this point.

I guess the first thing I need to do is find out if I am Conficker protected or vulnerable.

UPDATE: Here is a link from the conficker working group that allows you to quickly check for infection. It is the Conficker Eye Chart
