Title: Conficker C the April Fools Virus
Post by: mwestfall on March 31, 2009, 09:18:30 PM
The Conficker C Virus aka April Fools Virus.

There are rumors going around that on April 1st a virus payload will crash multiple computers across the world.  This is simply not true.  Snopes.com has become a one stop shop for looking up hoaxes, rumors, scams, and other things that may or may not be true.  As such I defer further comment on the issue to their very thorough article on the subject:

Please note that the best way to avoid worrying about problems like these, is to have an up to date and fully featured anti-malware software on your computer.  ECAN Solutions, strongly encourages the use of Grisoft's award winning anti-malware software, AVG.  For the entire month of April, ECAN Solutions will be offering a 10% discount on all new license purchases of Grisoft's AVG product with simple mention of this mailing!  Normally the version of AVG that we suggest is $34.99 a year.  With the 10% discount, that is a mere $31.49.

Not only is AVG cheaper per year than McAffe or Norton, their software has proven time and time again in the field that it is able to more quickly adapt and incorporate new and emerging threats to computers in today's hostile environment.
