Bugs & Viruses We're well and deep into April 1 now, and if you were to believe some of the reports and hype on the internet, we should've all been paying in bottle caps right about now. As any sane person already saw coming, the Windows worm Conficker didn't do anything. It just kind of sat there, patiently mocking all those who did not update their machines properly.

Perhaps doing nothing was the April Fools joke in itself?

if people had of patched their systems in October, when the patch came out, then the worm wouldn't exist. This is not a problem with Windows security, it's a user problem.

Every system gets security updates. Repeat it now:

EVERY SYSTEM GETS SECURITY UPDATES.

If you keep spouting nonsense, it'll be you that looks like the joke.
