  • A: No, not really.
  • Q: Seriously, the Conficker worm is going to do something bad on April 1st, right?
  • A: The Conficker aka Downadup worm is going to change it’s operation a bit, but that’s unlikely to cause anything visible on April 1st.
  • Q: So, what will it do on April 1st?
  • A: So far, Conficker has been polling 250 different domain names every day to download and run an update program. On April 1st, the latest version of Conficker will start to poll 500 out of 50,000 domains a day to do the same thing.
