'Worm virus' hits 9m computers

A worm that infects computers lacking the latest security patches or updated anti-virus software is spreading rapidly, according to security experts.

The malicious program, variously known as Conficker, Downadup or Kido, was discovered in October 2008.

On its blog pages, online security firm F-Secure estimates the worm has now infected 8.9 million machines globally. However, the Finland-based firm recently suggested that the "worm virus" may be a dud.

The virus does not appearing to be working as intended, according to F-Secure. Chief security adviser Patrik Runald told PA that its coding suggests a type of bug that alerts computer users to bogus infections on their machines and offers to help by selling antivirus software. Instead, the virus is mostly spreading to little effect - though it may still pose a threat to infected computers.

Microsoft released a security patch to deal with the worm on October 23. However, computers that have not had the latest security patches installed – or which lack up-to-date anti-virus software – remain vulnerable.

"Obviously the best thing you can do - as we stressed back in November - is make sure that Microsoft’s patch is in place on every vulnerable computer on your network," wrote Sophos security expert Graham Cluley on his blog.

"In addition, you should ensure that your anti-virus software is up-to-date."
Cliff Evans, head of security and privacy at Microsoft UK, said: "Our advice is for users to ensure their antivirus protection is up to date with latest definitions. One of the ways Conficker spreads is by exploiting a vulnerability which was addressed at the end of October 2008 with Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-067 which we further recommend users download.

"Other means of infection include exploitation of weak password policies and unprotected file shares. The easiest way to ensure latest security updates are installed is to enable the Automatic Update feature in Windows. Those that do not use Automatic Updates can go to

"We have updated our customers on this threat through the Microsoft Malware Protection Center blog. We’ll continue to provide updates as necessary."

Users can download the security patch for their version of Windows from the following site

Paid for doing online surveys? Yeah right, I wish...

I tried one of those online survey sites about 4 months ago that
say all you have to do is spend a couple of minutes filling out
some surveys and you will be making hundreds a day.....
YEAH RIGHT, I didn't make anything.

I joined 7 of these stupid websites and I actually tried filling
out a couple of surveys on each site and they took forever and then
at the end they wanted me to buy things or I couldn't complete
the survey.

These are complete scams so be aware!!! I couldn't believe they
were even allowed to sell such bogus products.

Then about 2 weeks ago I was watching the news and they had some
vice presidents and marketing managers of some major multi million
dollar companies talking about a site that they personally work
with to pay consumers for their opinion, a site that actually just
wants the "average Joe's" honest opinion on products
and services and is willing to pay big money to get them.

I tried this site out and it is the only one I have ever
seen that actually pays you just to take surveys. I made
almost $100 in my first day just filling out 3 simple surveys.

This is the only legit survey site online, so if you are
interested in making hundreds per day just giving your opinions
then make sure you check this out.

P.S. there is a video on the homepage that will explain everything.
If I were you I would at least check the video out and if you don't
make at least $300 in your first week they have a 3 month refund
policy so just get your money back!!! This is definitely worth a

I've been cheated & I want a refund!!

Wanted to talk a little about the sad state of Internet
marketing nowadays....

Recently, I've received tons of JV requests and plenty
of ebooks to review and to be honest, if I bought 95%
of them, I'd be screaming that email headline you've
just read.

...and mind you, there are plenty of big names in there
as well. But there was only ONE that really caught my eye

...I want to introduce you these two young hot shots - they
are going to take the Internet marketing world by storm!


They have devised a (sneaky) clever way that *you*
can easily start profiting on the internet without:

* A Website
* Products
* Doing Anything 'Technical'
* Marketing As An Affiliate
* Or selling anything!

You won't have seen anything like this before,
and this is a *real* opportunity. It involves siphoning
literally free traffic from Google for massive profits!

Like anything genuine it does involve a bit of effort - but
little more than a couple of hours easy set up!

Take a look now and see the $30,971.82 proof
(In just 2 weeks!!)

You'll be glad you did!

P.S. I don't lend my name or reputation to many
products, but this gets my highest recommendation.

I strongly urge you to check it out:
