Conficker Continues To Spread

The spread of Conficker/Downadup since February

The spread of Conficker/Downadup since February

Well much of the media hype seems to have died down around Conficker/Downadup, but it is still out there spreading far and wide. In fact the Symantec threat intelligence team estimate 50,000 PCs a day right are attacked. However just to clarify, this isn’t necessarily a cumulative total because it doesn’t take into account machines which don’t get cleaned up and get repeatedly infected.

This is a heat map of the spread of Conficker since February and as you can see the US, Brazil and India top the charts.

    I have customers who have started to accept Conficker as being part of their network. It is vvery odd that they do not realise that Conficker/downadup can mutate into something new. they just live with it. A site to behold.
