Hello again from Melbourne!
We've seen another resurgence of Worm:Win32/Conficker, this time as Worm:Win32/Conficker.B . We've already received a number of reports of this new variant from the wild from affected users.
Not surprisingly, a majority of the new infections we’re seeing are on machines that are yet to install the MS08-067 update (see our previous posts 'More MS08-067 Exploits' and 'A Quick Update About MS08-067 Exploits'). This new variant also spreads via network shares by attempting to log in to machines using a list of weak, common and predictable passwords.
Make sure you install those patches guys and keep your anti-Virus solution up to date!
See you in 2009!
