Conficker and Journalist that were hoping to have some news to boost sales.

April 1, 2009 — Leave a comment

Lots of laughs from the Washington Post  on the conficker worm – so far a big nothing, but at least this paper has a sense of humor on the subject (or more likely they were disappointed as readership numbers in this country are declining in the wake of Internet news sources.)  SC Maginzine said first – don’t expect much.  If something does happen, I’ll be sure to add a sound bite right here.

In the mean time I am preparing to speak today to a group that must take action; state and local government IT executives in Sacramento California.  State and local is where much of our personal information resides and it’s a big target for those stealing and selling information.  These crimes won’t be announced as a disruptive software threat, but will rather come in disguise, siphoning off data as long as they can do it undetected.
