Malware: beware the Conficker worm

This computer worm has been quietly worming its way into Windows computers around the world. It’s scheduled to go off on April 1st. But that doesn’t mean it’s just an April Fool’s Day joke. The Conficker worm can take over computers and monitor keystrokes. You’re probably safe if you use Firefox, if you have strong passwords and updated virus-protection software, if you don’t open unsolicited attachments, including from your friends.

I for one am seriously thinking of not turning on my computers at all tomorrow.
