Conficker a Con Job?

worm

Well, last night I finished updating my anti-virus program and downloading a patch with 15 minutes to spare before the midnight activation of the Conficker worm.  I didn’t find it on my two computers at home, but what do I know about computers.  Call me ignorant, but I know as much about computers as I know about cars – gas, oil, press pedal, go fast.  So when someone on a news website says ‘imminent disaster…go here and download this patch, go there and update your virus software’, and like sheep I do it, we all do it. 

Ten hours later, it looks like the news about Conflicker  wasn’t as bad as it could have been.   The Internet and our whole human civilization have been saved for another day of on-line porn, cheap commercialism, spam and social networking.  And blogging.
