    Default Warning: Conficker Hype mis-used by Rogues!

    "Oh the irony.

    As you're all aware Conficker has been in the news a lot lately, especially with regards to if anything will happen on April 1st or not.

    We found out that rogue security software folks have picked up on this. For example, let's have a look at remove-conficker.org, a domain which was registered today:
    "

    They advertise a tool called MalwareRemovalBot. It's fake. Interestingly, it doesn't always find non-existing malware infections on your PC only sometimes. But one thing is for sure, it does not remove Conficker.C. We tried it and it didn't do a thing to remove it.
