April Fools Virus.... Conficker

April Fools again... and Viruses are released again. This one, called "Conficker" has been out since late 2008, but if you are infected, is supposed to turn your computer into a zombie drone and phone home to it's servers.

Here is more information on the worm: http://www.microsoft.com/protect/computer/viruses/worms/conficker.mspx

This begs the questions...

1) Am I up to date on Virus Software and M$ updates?

2) WHY oh WHY would any nefarious hacker announced that a worm would attack on a given day? Publicity? -- Yes... but would that make the hacker super-intelligent or set them up to be caught & arrested sooner (aka super-stupid).

Historically, the best means of attacking enemies was surprise and stealth.... hmmmmmmm.
