“According to Joe Stewart, a security researcher at SecureWorks who knows what’s what when it comes to malware, “there will be no April 1st outbreak.” Clean PCs won’t suddenly melt down from a new Conficker infection. All that will happen, Stewart writes, is that the worm will begin to use a new trick that gives it a better chance of getting around existing defenses that attempt to prevent it from updating. The ability has been around since a new Conficker variant came out earlier this month, but it won’t activate until April 1st, Stewart says.” – Ron Bailey
