Conficker worm patch tools and updates

A cyber worm that's already infected millions of computers worldwide is poised to damage up to 10 millions more on April 1.

The Conficker worm is a computer worm that can infect your computer and spread itself to other computers across a network automatically, without human interaction.

From Microsoft

If you or your network administrator have not installed the latest security updates from Microsoft and your antivirus provider, and if you have file-sharing turned on, the Conficker worm could allow remote code execution. Remote code execution allows an attacker to take control of your computer and use it for malicious purposes.
