    Default Eye chart can help diagnose Conficker

    Joe Stewart from SecureWorks has put together an effective "eye chart" that sources its graphics from sites that Conficker would block. Click here to view the chart. If you can't see one or more of the images, you're either infected or image loading in your browser has been disabled.



    Firefox users can check if image loading has been disabled under Tools/Options and the Content tab. Load Images Automatically should be checked. Internet Explorer users will find it under Tools/Internet Options, then the Advanced tab. Scroll down to Multimedia and Show Pictures should be checked.

    It's a test based on the fact that Conficker blocks legitimate security Web sites. The logos are sourced remotely so if they can't load, then the sites are also likely to be blocked. If you're seeing blocked images, you should check out the CNET guide to removing Conficker--just because the botnet hasn't done much that's demonstrably malicious yet doesn't mean it can't or won't in the future
