  • conficker virus is cool

    Malware could be triggered to steal data or turn control of infected computers over to hackers amassing "zombie" machines into "botnet" armies.


    A troubling aspect of Conficker is that it harnesses computing power of a botnet to crack passwords.
    how cool is that?!

        Nothing interesting installs on the mac.
        When two wrongs fail to make a right, it is because the second wrong was of insufficient magnitude.

          “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                After the confiker virus has gained access to a system it will install itself by adding a number of randomly named dynamic link libraries (dlls) into the system directory.
                Next, confiker will install a system service in order to execute itself.
                Cunningly, it also modifies some system registries in order to hide the service that it created.

                The next step is for the virus to propagate itself.
                It will do this by attempting to spread through local networks by using brute-force techniques on usernames and passwords.
                Additionally, confiker will attempt to copy itself to any external devices it finds, such as external hard drives, flash drives, memory cards, etc.
                Removal of confiker can be somewhat tricky as it blocks access to the most well-known security websites, such as Microsoft, McAfee, Norton, etc., which seriously reduces the effectiveness of anti-virus solutions.

                    Yeah real cool.

                    I wonder how cool people would think it was if it fucked up ECU maps on bikes.

                    Just makes extra work for my team and potentially damages our company.

                    Yeah real cool.
