Case Conficker Worm F-secure

 

Conficker, also known as Downup, Downadup and Kido, is a computer worm targeting the Microsoft Windowsoperating system that was first detected in November 2008.[1] It uses flaws in Windows software and dictionary attacks on administrator passwords to propagate while forming a botnet. Conficker has since spread rapidly into what is now believed to be the largest computer worm infection since the 2003 SQL Slammer,[2] with more than seven million government, business and home computers in over 200 countries now under its control. The worm has been unusually difficult to counter because of its combined use of many advanced malware techniques.
